Title: Break the Padlock with sling
Post by timpa on Jul 12th, 2019 at 6:29pm
I refer to the legality of the sling:
now the police can confiscate the sling because it is a burglary tool. :)

Nice shooting Timpa!
Thatís a really unusual looking lock.  I have a big collection of keyless locks, but itís mostly to practice lock picking for fun.  Iíd love to try picking one of those. If you come across another one, Iíd trade you a monkeyís fist lanyard for it.

They're super common in Finland. They are THE Finnish lock and like Timpa says in the video have been around a long time now. I'm pretty sure you can buy them in some of the larger supermarkets. I would send one but I already have one of your monkey fist lanyards :D

Nice slinging, Timpa.† As I mentioned on Youtube, I didn't expect stones to break the lock.  I thought you'd have to resort to ball bearings. Live and learn.

Good hits!  And a nice show of some precision with a pirouette throw.

If Timpa isnít interested, Iím sure we could come to some other arrangement Kick :)
It might take me a few weeks to finish my current project before I can put another one together, but Iíve been playing with a 6-strand round braid sling cord that gradually tapers off like a bull whip.  Iíll post pictures when ithe first one is finished. Maybe I could send you an asymmetric sling with a tapered release cord instead of a monkey fist lanyard in exchange for a lock I canít buy in the States?

That does sound interesting :D

Thank you fellows  :)
When I started throwing, I didn't know how the padlock would last. When I looked at the video, I assume that the lock remained only one or two hits.

NooneOfConcequence and Kick:  If you can handle this case, it's good!  :)

Roger that Timpa. Your secret identity is safe!

You know I'm just impressed that you can hit anything with that style - let alone  a tiny target like that :thumb:

Post by timpa on Jul 16th, 2019 at 6:24pm
Thanks CA  :) I'm so long thrown this style that I am accustomed to it. :)

NoOC:
:)Not my identity is sooo secret. But if you get a lock from Kick, that's good.
For example: I have sent a sling to Canada:

I'm heading off to the summer cottage for a few days so it'll be a while until I get the chance to get hold of a lock but I'll get on it once I'm back in Helsinki :)

No rush Kick. With a newborn in the house, Iím moving pretty slow on projects these days.

@Timpa... I was joking about the secret identity, but if you want a monkeyís fist lanyard from Texas, Iíd be happy to send you one with or without a trade.  With all of the entertainment Iíve gotten out of your videos, youíve earned it!

Isn't Timpa dangerous enough? :D

I think Timpa would be just as dangerous even if I only mailed him an empty envelope :)

@NoOC:
If you really want to send MF, then of course it's fine!
I can also make a video of it.

For example, would you like a few metal reels? When sling into the rock they spark:

The Abloy padlock just arrived today... thanks Kick!  Itís a very unique design compared to locks here in the US.

Title: Re: Break the Padlock with sling
Post by Kick on Aug 13th, 2019 at 3:09am
Great to hear! No sign of the sling yet but I'm guessing it should be here pretty soon.

Title: Re: Break the Padlock with sling
Post by timpa on Aug 14th, 2019 at 4:37pm
Soon I'll be in the post office. I'm posting metal reels.

Thanks Timpa!  Your ďkeychainĒ should arrive very soon.   

Title: Re: Break the Padlock with sling
Post by Kick on Aug 16th, 2019 at 3:32pm
Sling has arrived! Amazing work! I really can't wait to get out and give it a go. I was really confused with it being rolled up in the tin. I was trying to remember what I had ordered that came in a tin then realised it was from you and was even more confused :D The stone looks very pretty as well. Thanks!

Title: Re: Break the Padlock with sling
Post by timpa on Aug 16th, 2019 at 4:32pm
Monkey Fist arrived. AND IT IS NIIICE  :D
Thousands of thanks NooOC!

The video will take place later, (and the next week rolls leave. I've been busy)

Title: Re: Break the Padlock with sling
Post by NooneOfConsequence on Aug 18th, 2019 at 11:16am
Awesome!  Iím glad everything arrived. Have fun!

@Timpa, Iím glad you like it!  I canít wait to see the video.

@kick, The whole presentation in the tin was sort of accidental.  I used mink oil on the jute for waterproofing, and I had the empty tin left over, so I cleaned it up and used it to pack up the sling. After I put the sling in, there was a hole in the middle, and I thought it looked nicer with the rock in there :)
