I went to Greece recently and enjoyed their hospitality, excellent food and wonderful places. I really love the Greek islands and sea.
Since I was there I bought some souvenirs, a padlock and a couple of cylinders.
The padlock was nothing special
The TEGASI cylinder was very nice to pick. It's a dimple lock with 10 active pins on two parallel rows.
I had to play with it a few times to get the feel for that particular lock, because the right tension needed to pick it was not easy to find.
Usually I rotate the pick to lift the pins in the opposite direction than tension goes. This time I rotated it the same direction, both the pick and the wrench went CCW, so I had to use very light tension. A lot lighter than usual since the pick was not opposing the wrench rotation.
I noticed the center row was binding first so I picked its five pins, then picked the five on the left row, and then finished the center again. The plug turned and I was happy
