Whenever I travel abroad I try to estimate the most common locks and order (ten of each of) the most popular blanks. In case of Spain I understood they use a lot of dimple locks like TESA T-60 and T-80, MCM 4SE, CISA, STS (CS-5, CS-6, CS-8 etc), ISEO, Ezcurra S-10 and DS-15 and LINCE. So I collected around twenty different type of blanks. Of course this is not enough to cover all the locks, but I hope it covers some of them.
As far as I see, Impressioning dimple locks is the same as impressioning a ‘normal’ pin tumbler locks. Problem is I only tried around ten different locks (Iseo, Lips, Dom, Keso, Abus, Mul-t 7X7 etc). And except the mul-t-lock 7X7 I succeeded in opening all of them. I hope to get my hands on some (used) spanish dimple locks while there and be able to practice some more.
Are there Spanish blackbag readers that would like to meet for a cup of coffee, and maybe trade locks and/or blanks? I will be staying in the Plaza EspaÃƒÂ±a area in Barcelona.
Advice on what other locks/blanks are popular in Spain is welcome too, please use the comments (or mail me: barry at toool.nl) if you have any info….
