Egyptian Pin Tumlber lock kit (Handmade and only available here)
Egyptin Pin Tumbler lock kit made in the UK from solid oak
I ‘rough-cut’ and drill the lock-shell, block, bolt and key out of solid oak. You do the rewarding part: whittle down the tumbler pins, fit the key pegs and then assemble, sand and trim the lock so that it works smoothly. Watch the instruction video HERE.
Lock height: 98mm
Lock width: 60mm
Bolt length: 138mm
Kit includes sandpaper. You will need your own craft-knife, pencil and ruler. No glue required.
Display your lock or use it as the Egyptians did; it is, after all, a fully functioning lock. Some ideas; if your carpentry skills permit:
Toilet roll security system!
