Does anyone have any idea what this is? I assume it is some sort of locksmith tool- thumbwheel with adjustable chuck : Locksmith


We have one of those, master has padlocks with universal pins (they have serration lines pre cut into them) so you can take a customers existing key with the new lock and place it into that tool, then as you tighten the nut on the base it’s pushing the cylinder into the padlock body and shearing off the pins to suit. They are handy if you have someone who already has a bunch of keyed alike master locks with the same profile that these come in and they want to get more. We call it ‘crunching’ I don’t believe that’s the technical term but it does make a crunch sound when you do it

Tool bag recommendations. : Locksmith


I have this bag: https://www.lowes.com/pd/AWP-18-in-Zippered-Rolling-Tool-Bag/1001339960

Recently add this clipped onto one of the handles: https://www.lowes.com/pd/TOUGHBUILT-Polyester-General-Construction-Tool-Pouch/1003095652 still easy to carry up stairs by the handles

Need to sew a strap onto the back to clip it on instead of the handle and could probably use another just to keep things more organized and easier to access but those two handle all the tools I use for most installs. When doing access control I have a few boxes for wire, box connectors, wire connectors, etc. able to fit all of those and my bag on a three level rolling tray so it works out for me.

Special tool for Anderson Hickey file cabinet lock?

I've got a broken filing cabinet lock I need to remove, but it looks like there is a special tool required (see the "bolt" highlighted in the photo). Any idea what tool is required?
