Would you like to learn about lock picking? Come to our meeting Tuesday July 10th @ 7pm.
The meeting will feature a talk from a member of Toool.us (The Open Organization of Lockpickers), Steve Beck.
Steve will cover three topics, two of which are a little more hands on-ish, the first will be a basic lockpicking talk, the second will be a re-keying talk with a demo and the third will be about making your own picks with a demo.
Stick around after the talk for socializing and Makery Shenanigans.
