Received this lock in a package from Australia. 7 pin Lockwood v7 with no key. Pins are staggered and drilled at an angle towards the center of the plug. 3 spool pins are standard from what I understand about the lock. The key is "split" at the top with cuts on both sides, kind of like a BiLock.

Very cool lock :cool: Another name on my to-buy list :razz:

Edit: there's a page about this cool lock on "High-Security Mechanical Locks: An Encyclopedic Reference" and google is letting me see this page of the book after a simple search.

Cheers :)

Do the spools allow for pins in both shear lines to bind at the same time when picking? I'm not sure I said that right but my thought was that if they are separated enough, it would be like picking a 4-ping lock, getting a slight turn of the plug, and then picking a 3-pin lock (or the other way around depending on the direction you tension). I understand there's a video, I'll check that out tonight and see if that provides more insight.
