I bought a few some time ago and have ground down the shanks to fit the keyways and have modified the ends somewhat to more closely resemble lock picks.
I find I can feel the individual pins much easier with the dental tools than with my (homemade) set of picks ground from hacksaw blades. The handles are longer as well and seem to fit my hand better.
Just curious if anyone else has tried this.
I have the dental tools you speak of, i have never used them to "Pick" a lock though... i use them more for grabbing & poking, maybe, the odd extraction.... they are deffinatly handy, but i dont use them to pick locks open.
