Happy New Year! And a happy winter 2013 meeting

Happy New Year! Detroit Locksport was still in post-holiday hibernation when the January meeting snuck up on us, so we’ll be reconvening in February with a special mission. Come help us celebrate our second anniversary as we dig into impressioning.

What exactly will we be doing? According to LockWiki, “Impressioning is a non-destructive, covert method of creating a working key for a lock without picking or disassembly. Impressioning is one of the most useful skills in locksmithing.” Clearly, this is a skill you should add to your toolkit. We’ll be showing you how to assess the internal workings of a lock and how to make a key from a plain piece of metal, all with your own bare hands. (And the help of some files). As usual, we’ll provide the materials; you just have to come use them.

Join us for this biennial security extravaganza at 8:00 on Thursday, January 7 at Omnicorp Detroit, located at 1501 Division in Eastern Market.

In the meantime, make sure to sign up for our mailing list to get an ear in on all the locksport gossip, including schedule amendments and meeting topic proposals.
