This was the pin tumbler lock. We use the sa me security principle today in millions of applications. The most commonly used lock today is the pin tumbler lock. A series of pins that are divided at certain points should be raised to these dividing points in relationship to the separat ion between the cylinder wall and the shell of the lock by a key cut for that pa rticular series of pin divisions. Thus the cylinder can be turned and opened the mechanism or lock. The crop means the lock to open a lock using a flat piece of steel called a selection. Actually, the process requires two pieces of flat ste el to open cylinder locks. It amuses me to watch spies and thieves in the locks on the harvest of the TV using only one tool. But it's for the better in a sense . If everyone learned how to pick locks by watching TV, we'd all be at the mercy of anyone who wanted to steal from us, and the cylinder lock for the most part would be outdated. The actual definition of the harvest of the lock should be: "The manipulation an d opening of mechanical or electronic device by restricting the use of tools wit h the exception of the instrument involved (key or code) used solely for that de vice." A very short description long, but more accurate. With cylinder locks, re quires selection and tension wrench. Picking the lock, simply replace the functi on of a key by a selection pins to lift its "point of tie, "and with a tension wrench one rotates the cylinder to operate the lever on the back of the lock cylinder to open the mechanism. The tension wrench is used to apply tension to the lock cylinder to cause a slight binding action on the b olts as well as turn the cylinder after the pins have been aligned by the select ion, this opens the lock. The slight binding action on the pins caused by the te nsion wrench allows you to hear and feel each pin while "breaks" or reaches alig nment with the separation of the cylinder and shell. The vibration is felt in th e knuckles and joints of the fingers, and the sound is similar to that of a cric ket in a subtle yet distinct click wrestling match-one arm. Usually need very li ttle tension with the wrench while picking the lock. In fact, it takes a delicat e touch, yet firm. This is the secret to successfully signed-on to the locks of the crop but try to touch gently on the tension wrench. You could feel the pins click int o place with the right amount of tension, the experience will be your true guide . Half of your success will be based on your ability to use or improvise various objects to use as tools for your purpose. The other half depends on practice. I once picked a pin tumbler lock using a borrowed roach clip and a hairpin. A dan gerous fire was prevented and many lives were probably saved. The world is full of useful objects for the purpose, so never hesitate to experiment. TOOLS lit harvest locks using a small screwdriver and a safety pin. The screwdri ver can be used as key to the tension, and the safety pin is used as one of "hoo k." The half-inch past the tip of the screwdriver was bent at an angle of 45 deg rees to allow easy entry for selection (bent safety pin). Do not heat the screwd river tip to bend, as this will destroy his genius. Use a spanner and a hammer t o do the job. Bend slowly by using firm and short taps of the hammer, if you can not break and weaken the shaft. The safety pin should be about one and a half i nches long and folded in the same way. With the small screwdriver as a tension w rench, you can use more of a movement that turns or twists that with a regular t ension wrench so you generally need less direct force to use. As I mentioned ear lier, with practice will develop the feel for the right amount of tension in a c ylinder.€If the safety pin bends after a short time, use the keyway of the lock you are picking to bend it back into shape. Even after several times of bending , it should still be useful. Keep some spares handy, though. File the tip of the

safety pin in relationship to the flat bottom of the pins in the lock. Smooth a ny sharp edges so you do not impale. Also, if the tip is smooth, the selection w ill not get hung up on the pins while picking the lock. Granted these are not th e best tools for the job, but they work. If you learn to use your junk box as a rich source of equipment, then your actual selections lock will give you experie nce the magic fingers. Also, you will have the advantage of being able to improv ise if the **** of me without the real things (which are illegal to continue to your person in most parts of the country). The selections of the lock difficult to achieve. I received my first set when I apprentice locksmith. All I did my su bsequent systems of steak knives stainless steel with a grinder and cutoff wheel . They are much more durable than the commercial picks. If you make your own, ma ke sure the steel is off after every three seconds to grind, do not allow the se lection gets hot to the point of blue discoloration. A selection of the diamond is the selection of standard used in most all bolt locks and the wafer. A small selection of diamond is used for small bolt locks the glass such as small key pa dlocks, file cabinet locks, etc. The selection tubular cylinder lock, we will discuss later. The key to both ends of the tension solopinchada used with the selection of the diamond. It off ers dual-use, a small end for small cylinders and a big butt for larger cylinder s. A special tension wrench is used for cylinder locks of the double-wafer with one end with two teeth at one end and the tubular cylinder locks with a single t ooth on the other end. We will discuss tubular cylinder locks and later also dou blewafer. The steel should be 0.030 inch to 0.035 inch thick for selections and 0.050 inch to 0.045 inch thick for the first key of the tension mentioned above. The second key to the tension must be 062 square inch (0.062 inch x 0.062 inch) tubular cylinder side (one end pinched), and 0.045 inch thick at the end of the double-wafer (twopronged the end). You can achieve this by starting out with .0 45 inch in thickness. The two-pronged end should be bent carefully in a vise at an angle of 30 degrees. This allows easy entry for selection in dobleoblea locks . Among the most common tools used by professionals around the world is the select ion of the rake. The selection of the rake is used "to rake" the vessels instead slide in and out through the vessels. Rarely use the selection of the rake beca use it is highly effective and consider it a sloppy excuse for a selection of th e lock. I've seen the rake pick the locks work on some difficult, but you can ra ke with a selection of diamond and get the same results. I prefer the selection of diamonds for most of the locks of the glass simply because it is easier to ge t in and out of lock-it slides through the vessels with little or no trouble. A selection of the ball is used for cylinder locks of the double-wafer of the crop , though I never wear one, I use a large selection of diamond and reverse it whe n picking these locks. This means I have one less choice to lead and lose. A selection of double-ball is used as a rake in the locks of the double-wafer in conjunction with a tension wrench (two-pronged end). A selection of the hook is used to open the locks of the glass of the lever, but again, use a selection of diamond with a hooking action when possible. There are various sizes of hooks b ut they all have the same basic work-a movable detent levers that open the locks of the lever. There are also several sizes of the keys to the tension. They are usually made of spring steel. The standard tension wrench is used to bolt locks and the wafer. A special tension wrench is called a touch of the pen,€and used for the mushroom and pin high security locks reel glass. Its delicate spring-lo aded action allows the selection of bypass tendencies of these pins to stick. A homemade version of the touch pen can be ma de from a steel spring of the duty of the half-light. As for getting the lock pi ck for your own use, you can not go down to your local hardware store and buy th em. Could you provide some sources or traders, but I think it is illegal to sell to individuals. Your best bet would be to find a machine shop to manufacture it

for you. It would be less costly and would raise less suspicion if you purchase a small grinder with a cutoff wheel and make your own. With a little practice, you can make an entire system for an afternoon. Use a copy of the illustrations in this book templates and carefully cut out with a knife XACT. Lower the center of the lines. Gain some stainless steel (many steak knives approach proper thic kness). With a glue stick, lightly coat one side of the paper template and apply it to the cleaned steel surface and allow to dry. You'll need a can of black sp ray paint the end of the wrinkle. This kind of paint has a high carbon content a nd can stand high temperature grinding. Spray the stainless (or knives) with the patterns glued on and dry in a hot oven or direct sunlight for one hour. Set as ide for twenty-four more hours. Peel off the paper template and you're ready to cut and grind. Please be careful when cutting and grinding. The piece should be turned off every three seconds in cold water. Smooth up sharp edges with a small file or polishing wheel. The tools made of stainless steel will last longer pur chased. The tools purchased from most suppliers are made of steel and spring wea r out after about 100 applications. The stainless steel ones, if done properly, should last over 2,000 applications. LOCK IDENTIFICATION There are many types of locks, the most common: 1. The pin tumbler lock. Used for the doors of the hous e and garage, padlocks, mail boxes, and Ford cars. 2. The tumbler lock of the wa fer. Used for garage doors and trailer, desks, padlocks, cabinets, most automobi les, window locks, vending machines and older. 3. The lock of the double-wafer. Used for higher wafer vessel safety. 4. The loc ks stored. Used for light security padlocks and old-fashioned locks the door. 5. Lever locks used for security and padlocks slightly older, sophisticated safe d eposit boxes, some desks, jewelry boxes and small boxes of cash. 6. Tubular cyli nder locks. Used for alarm control systems, newer vending machines, control boxe s and wherever carwash higher problems of security may exist. These locks are th e most common locks used yet there are variations and combinations of these prin cipal types that usually pick open the way will be discussed. Some of them just require practice of the basic types, others luck, and most of the rest of them a ware of how that particular lock works and tunes. This comes from experience. LOCKS PIN TUMBLE pin tumbler lock offers the most security for their price. They have close tolerances of the machine and approximately 1,000,000 different key combinations for a five-pin lock. Given the thousands of different companies tha t make the bolt glasses (various keyways formed for each line of the company or design), the chances someone who has a key that works on your front door lock ar e one in many billions . The pin tumbler lock can be easily identified peering down the keyway and locati ng the first pin round. You can see sometimes the dividing point of the pin, whe re he breaks with the cylinder wall (shear point). To successfully choose a pin tumbler lock, your sense of touch sould hone it so that both hands feel the tool s. The hand holding the selection once you have located a slight relief in tensi on while picking a particular glass, the other hand holding the tension wrench w ill feel a point of relief or replay. Both hands must be involved with the sense of touch,€the detection of the inner workings of the lock. Now we are ready to begin the first lesson. First open your front door and check to see if there is a pin tumbler lock on it. You must have one on it. If there is one, leave the d oor open to suspicion of the decrease. No trabarte of your apartment or house be ing presumptuous, not just lift the suspicion, but window glass is not cheap. HOW TO PICK A LOCK STEP ONE TUMBLE Without using the tension wrench, slide the l ock selection. The "hook" of the selection should be toward the vessels (above i n most cases, depending on whether or not the lock was mounted upside - down - y ou can tell by looking down the keyway and locating the first pin with your sele ction.) Try to feel the glass past the lock. Must be 7 / 8 inch in the lock to a lock tumbler fivepin (most common pin tumbler lock applied). Ensure that you ha ve no tension in the key when inserting the selection as this will clog the fron

t glasses. When you feel the rear glass, lift it slowly with a slight prying mot ion selection. Throw it, but keep the selection to lock in the glass later. Now insert the tension wrench, allowing room for selection to handle all the bolts. Should be placed on the bottom of the cylinder if the lock was mounted verticall y towards the top of vessels cylinder. Apply firm but gentle pressure to treat the right to the tension wrenc h. Slowly lift the cup back with a slight prying motion selection. One click wil l be felt and heard detailed when it breaks. Lose their elasticity when this occ urs, so will not encourage him. Any movement over another with the selection wil l cause the jam going beyond the line of shear bolts. Continue even pressure wit h the tension wrench. Save a uniform pressure of the tension, proceed to step tw o. STEP TWO The fourth vessel to be easily sense since it is the next in line. R aise it until it breaks, keeping constant tension wrench. He will also give a so und and feel when it breaks or lines. STEP THREE The third or half a cup is next . Again will click too. Maintain a steady, even pressure to the pressure about t he same key you would use to replace a cap on a bottle of tomato sauce. You may feel that "click" in your tension wrench as well as hear. STEPS FOUR AND FIVE Continue on to the next glass out, working toward you. When it breaks, raise a glass (front) past your braking point and the cylinder must b e free to rotate and open the door. You sometimes have to play with the key to o pen the lock because you may have raised a glass too high, beyond its breaking p oint. If this is the case, very slowly and gradually release the pressure from t he tap of the voltage and over-extended the glass will fall into their breaking point before the other vessels have a chance of falling. The cylinder should pop open at that point. I found that this technique is responsible for more than 30 percent of my successes in opening all the locks of the glass. If the lock stil l refuses to open after all that treatment, release the pressure of the tension wrench, allowing all the glasses fall and start over. You can have more than one glass too high and you'd be better off repeating the process of harvesting. TUMBLE WAFER LOCKS Locks the glass wafer up about a quarter of the locks in oper ation worldwide. Since they are usually easier to pick than most pin tumbler loc k, you will be master of 75 percent after fooling around with these mechanisms. That's why I wrote about the pin tumbler lock that first-are more difficult and make up over half of the locks used today. . The wafer of the term refers to the general shape of the vessels. The wafers are the vessels flat spring which are much thinner than the bolts and the distance between them is less. Are chosen wafer locks in the same way that the pin tumble r lock, but you must offset smaller dimensions. You can identify wafer locks sim ply by looking down the keyway and locating the first glass plane. The last vess el in most wafer locks is located about one half inch in the lock. Wafer locks a re used in filing cabinets, cupboards, most cars, garage doors, desks, and where ver medium security is required.€The only lock the glass wafer in common usage it is difficult to pick the lock on the wafer side-bar. It is the most popular t ype of auto lock. This lock is of different design than most other locks and off ers much more security than a regular lock of the glass wafer, or even a pin tum bler lock. The side bar lock is used mostly on cars and trucks of General Motors since 1935. It is used in ignition, door and trunk locks. The bar side locks ar e hard to choose because you can not feel or hear the vessels aligned to the bre aking point of the cylinders. A spring-loaded bar falls into place to allow the cylinder to turn when you align all the glasses. There is no way to tell when th at happens. You learn to detect the bar while picking so that it looks down into place by itself. But for beginners, I recommend this technique for emergency op enings: The couple down the keyway and locate the lateral sulcus of vessels usin g any of the selection as a searching tool. Drill a small hole in the shell of t he lock on the bar that is on the grooves in the vessels. Since the lock side of the bar are centered keyways, the usual place to pierce is the opposite of the

keyway. With a steel L-shaped, put pressure on the sidebar and rake vessels usin g a tension wrench for rotation of the cylinder and the lock will open. Fortunat ely, most GMC cars have inferior window seals, with a coat hanger, a lasso of th e locking knob to the door to open the door. If you're going to be successful in the bars on the side of the opening, you will make within two minutes, otherwis e you're doing unnecessary wear on your selections not to mention wasting your t ime. Ford auto locks are relatively simple choice. They bolt vessels and you have to remember that th e locks on the door turn left. Most other auto locks turn right. If you're not s ure, remember this: If the glasses do not catch their breakpoints, you're going in the wrong direction with the tension wrench. Wafer locks are a cinch to pick if you've learned how to choose the bolt vessels. Just remember that the wafers are thinner than pins and there is less distance between them. Usually need less blood pressure-key with these locks, yet car locks can be quite stubborn and re quire a lot of tension. Any heavily spring-loaded cylinder needs a substantial a mount of tension. In general, though, wafer locks need less play with the tensio n wrench with pin tumbler lock. But if you find yourself having difficulty openi ng these, you can try a little game tensionwrench. There will usually pop open l ike pin tumbler lock, they just slide open, you do not get the warning given bef ore a glass bolt is opened because there is less contact area on the edge of the wafer on a pin, so the sense of climax is reduced with these types of locks. Ho wever, they open quite easily. DOUBLE WAFER LOCKS locks are chosen Double-wafer of the same form as the single wafer locks, but there are two sides to the story. Not only do you have to align the top wafers, but you have some in the bottom of the cylinder to align as wel l. The Chicago Lock Company was the first to come up with this type of lock. It is a classic example of the breed better security. Certain keys allow crop stress u sing continuous selections of the ball. You can also use a standard tension wren ch or small screwdriver and place it in the center of the keyway. To eliminate u nnecessary baggage, use a selection of diamond wafers by inverting to find the t op and bottom. The vessel spent in this type of lock is located less than one half of an inch i n. The harvesting procedure can be repeated wafers over a tiempotapa, then based wafers, top, bottom, back and forth. With all these locks are easier to pick th an most pin glasses. Locate the last wafer on the upper side and move it to your breaking point. Do the same with the other top wafers. Save the signing of the tension wrench, remove the selection, turn it upside down (if you're using a dia mond or a selection made at home), and reinsert to work the bottom wafers. You m ay have to repeat this process a few times€but the locks and double-wafer can b e opened with such treatment. Schlage has a doorknob lock that opens this way, b ut the last cup is about one inch and a half inches. Double locks-wafer are easy to master if you've learned to choose the pin tumbler lock and the wafer. Since double wafer locks are more compact, you have to compensate factslightly closer tolerances. These type of locks are used on old pop machines and candy, gas cap s, cabinets, etc.. PIN WAFER AND TUMBLE The padlocks cylinder padlocks require a technique to hold them with the same hand with which you are using the tension wrench. This techni que allows one to pick the padlock without going into contortions over the hangi ng a padlock. Assuming you're right, hold the padlock in your left hand grasping the body of the padlock with your thumb and forefinger. Insert the key tension in the bottom of the keyway and hold it in a right turn with your ring and littl e finger, causing a slight binding pressure on the cylinder. Your right hand is now free to choose, and your left hand does the job of holding the lock and key of stress. The overhand method works well, too, but the thumb controls the tensi

on wrench instead. Change around to finding that is most comfortable for you. Wh en the vessel padlocks pop open, it is quite a sensation because the cricket is spring loaded and gives one quite a jolt. It is a feeling of accomplishment. You may need a little more tension on padlocks that the door locks because the cyli nder cam has to operate a spring-loaded bolt. Overall, the padlocks are the most fun to pop. Practice the use of old or discarded padlocks have found. I've worn out hundreds of them. . TUBULAR CYLINDER LOCKS (Note: Diagrams of tubular lock were omitted due to the fact that choosing them with conventional methods are a complete waste of time. There are choices available that are specifically design ed to choose this kind of lock in a matter of seconds) proceed gradually to more sophisticated locks from here. I would remind you that success is not based on personality. If one is arrogant about his abilities to harvest the lock, one cou ld easily be made a fool near a lock. And no matter how many times you hit a cyl inder, you still will lock out. The only thing you accomplish is attracting an a udience-so be cool. If this point has been very difficult to understand the prin ciples of the bolt locks and the wafer, please restudy this book from the beginn ing. Read it several times to absorb it. The information I have now taken nearly two decades gather, so please be careful of that. Now you learn about how to op en the more difficult setting mechanism, some of the other 25 percent of the loc ks used today. You should feel confident with the pin tumbler locks, from the wafer and double-wafer before you attempt delborde cylinder locks. Tubular c ylinder locks stand out as the most generally accepted lock all major industries using high quality locks for the protection of property, merchandise, and cash. Are recognized as giving the maximum amount of security for your price range. T he tubular cylinder locks are pin tumbler lock arranged in a circular plane. Unl ike conventional pin tumbler lock, the bolts are exposed to the eye. The central section of the lock rotates to operate the lever when all seven pins have reach ed their breaking point. When the proper key is incorporated into the lock, the vessels in position to turn the central section (plug). This manual operation of inserting the key places the glasses in the position to operate the lock and en sures that frost, dust, salt, or bad weather will not affect the smooth operatio n of the lock.

The lock of Chicago as a product of the Chicago Lock Company of Chicago, Illinois. It is an effective security device an d is used in vending machines, coin boxes, and burglar alarms. A larger version, the more complex it is used on bank doors and electronic machines of the box. T he key is of tubular shape with the cuts arranged in a circle around the key. Th e selection is used for this selection tubular lock cylinder, or you can use a s traight pin or safety pin your homemade selection.

You have to pick three or four times to achieve the radio to open 120 to 180 degree s. And the cylinder locks after each time you pick it-every seventh of a turn. I f you leave the lock only partially selected, the key will not open, so you shou ld pick it back into the locked position after opening it-another three or four sessions they choose. In all, open and lock cylinder, you have to pick it up to eight times-quite a task if you do not have the tools or the right time. THE MUS

HROOM AND THE REEL fixing the pin tumbler lock locks High-security glass bolts m ay contain specially made to make them more challenging harvest. The bolts are m achined to make it quite difficult to harvest. By choosing these locks, bolts gi ve the impression that has been broken, when in fact it could be far from broken . You can tell whether or not you're picking a pin tumbler lock that has these p ins by the fact that the pins seem to align so easily with the click louder norm al. The cylinder seems eager to open but to no avail. The harvesting procedure r elies on a key bienrendimiento tension. The key to the tension has to be slightl y spring so that the pins can bypass their false breakpoints. You also have to " rake" (rocking in and out) pins with your selection. Feather-touch tension wrenc h is ideal for the job. Use light pressure with her, and let you in.. (Note: Pen -touch tension wrench is not necessarily required. A key tension normal work ver y well with an extremely light tension on it. The weight just only your index fi nger should be enough in most cases.) pins mushroom and spool locks are used for purposes such as doors altoseguridad the bank. The American Lock Company uses t hem in some of their padlocks. TIPS FOR SUCCESS undoubtedly find a pin tumbler l ock in which there is a pin or two that is too low tuning (the bolt shear line i s too high). In this case the lock is difficult to open because the breaking poi nt of a lower pin no longer allows room in the keyway so that the selection handle the other bolts . Your success in locks "tight" the opening will depend on the skill you have de veloped with your tension wrench. Sometimes it helps to play with the tension wr ench. Try firing left and right slightly while picking, allowing some of the gla sses falling from time to time. You can also try to choose the first or front ve ssels randomly pick these locks. You can tell if you have a lock that tune like this because your choice can get stuck during the harvest. After you open a cyli nder and you open a lock, be sure to return it to the locked position. You'll he ar the glasses clicking in place when this happens. Other wise it may be difficu lt to open it with your key because the bottom bolts can not "float" as they are normally.€To tell whether or not the cylinder should go right or left to pick a tumbler lock, there is an easy rule to follow. If the vessels (pin or wafer) w ill not break, nor remain broken, you're going in the wrong direction with the t ension wrench. There will be little or no progress with the cylinder, and few, i f any "clicks." Some keyways are angled (Yale cut, Dexter, and Schlage, for exam ple) so you want to be sure you bend your selection to follow that angle while t hat choosing your selection or get hung up. A slight twist of the wrist offset t his problem. If your fingers become tired while picking a lock, put your tools a nd shake your hands and fingers to relieve any tension. After some time the musc les in your hands they will become accustomed to such activity. Practice and per sistence will sing your hands and senses to the point where you will be able to pop open a cylinder in three to five seconds (that's seconds) in total darkness. The combination of touch and sound lets you know almost a split second before y ou open the lock that has been successful. If the lock is well-machined, the cyl inder will feel tight and you need a little stronger hand on the key tension. While choosing, if the bolts at any time feel firm or h ard to move, chances are it has been aligned. If you become elastic, is not. Usi ng the axis of selection if you need to work the front pin of a pin tumbler lock . This can save you the trouble of aligning the tip of the selection in the fron t pin where there is little or no help for selection. All other pins allow the s election is supported by the inner wall of the keyway. Master keyed pin tumbler lock are generally easy to pick open because he has more than one point of the l ine or jump in the shear bolts. The main tuning allows a group of locks is contr olled by a master key holder while the individual locks that individual keys con trol group. The hotels and apartment complexes are usually main tune. There is a simple technique to open pin tumbler locks and wafer. Drill just through shear lines of the vessels. This point is located just above the center of the keyway on the face of the cylinder. Doing this, though, obviously ruin the lock and do a lot of racket. If the lock is a Medeco or some other lock on the high-security

, you risk damage to one hundred dollars or more, so be sure you know the value of the situation before you decide to break the lock. Using a center punch to st art a reliable hole on the face of the cylinder and use a drill bit of onequarte r inch with a variable speed drill. With a large screwdriver, turn it to open. T he cylinder will be difficult to turn because you can shear the springs of the g lass that have fallen down past the line of shear cylinder. Dead bolt locks are those mounted on a door knob. All dead bolt locks open on the left with the door s left and right with right-wing doors. If you have trouble remembering this, ju st remember that the lock bolt has to go in the opposite direction of doorjam. D ead bolt locks are so easy to just choose open as knob locks are. Both have cyli nders that may be open choice. The main difference is that dead bolts can not be opened by sliding a plastic card or metal through to the bolt in the background . Notspring words are loaded. That's why they call dead bolts. Most knob locks n ow have guards in front of the bolts to deter the opening with the cards. Kwikfi jan, Weisers, and some of the less-expensive locks the knob can be opened in eit her direction. Schlage and Corbin, along with more sophisticated locks can be opened only in one direction. The locks open car anyway. Another method of selecting the pin tumbler lock is a weapon selection. While the selection snaps up, strikes the lower pin. This di smisses the top of the cylinder pin and the skin. As you apply pressure turning the key light stress, the cap bolts are caught in the shell, the cylinder will t urn. I have never used a weapon of choice,€but they work well for locksmiths wh o use them. They are uncomfortable and expensive, and show a certain lack of pro fessionalism. (Note: If you care about professionalism and desire to open 95% of all glass bolt locks out there - and quickly buy this device.'s Very impressive . Even recommend it on a cobra LEARNING TO TOUCH AND FEEL Most know play. We play everyday objects, but does no t feel right. It seems so commonplace that we forget that we are really feeling when we touch. Here is an exercise to develop a delicate touch. Rub and gently m assage your hands and fingers preferably with hand lotion. Do this for five minu tes. Once the lotion has evaporated, shake your hands and fingers so as to pull free. Gently pull each finger to relax each joint. Now with a piece of fine sand paper, gently draw the tips of your fingers through it. Try to feel the texture of the grains in your area. Relax your fingers, hands, forearms, shoulders and c hest. Take your time. Do this for several minutes. After some weeks of practice, you can feel each individual grain of sand on the sandpaper. This allows you to feel the slightest sensation vibrate through your bones. Try to remember to pra ctice touching and feeling during your daily experiences. Practice feeling wood, metal and other objects. Playing with a sense of mechanical vibrations, even yo ur TV. Attempt to detect the world around you as a source of information. This c ould and will open a whole new horizon of experience. A little later, you can fe el or detect the movement of vessels in a safe Sargeant and Greenleaf. My first safe opened in three minutes because that technique that took me years to discov er.
