Great meeting last night!
+
<br />
* we attempted to print a kwikset key on the makerbot and will be returning to that effort hopefully with more success;
+
==General Skills Overview==
* we used the Lazor to cut a basic lockpick from something similar to credit or license card stock.  The resulting pick was not strong enough to be useful, but this is something that we will be revisiting.  We have some ideas of trying to use carbon fiber instead: if anyone has experience or thoughts about this idea it would be great to hear!
+
This is general list of lockpicking skills to master by lock type. This is will be expanded later.
* using the mount that Brian put together for moving our pins around, we securely mounted the 500x microscope and then moved the target.  This resulted in much faster results (quicker focus) and much easier to move around for zooming in on the sides of pins and just general navigation of the pin/target without having to always re-adjust. This is a *huge* timesaver! We should be able to process items much more quickly.  I have pix to share and will upload later.
 
  
Also, note that Schulyer Towne has started taking preorders for his new picks. Check out [http://openlocksport.com/ Open Locksport!] and place an order before they are all gone!

== Stuff we need ==
 
 
 
In order to start a forensic lab there are a few things we need to buy still
 
 
 
* 400x microscope
 
* Some more lockpicks for general use
 
 
 
== Our Lab ==
 
 
 
* [http://www.lockpicks.com/browseproducts/Rubber-Workbench-Pinning-Mat.HTML Rubber Pinning Mat]
 
* [http://www.lockpicks.com/swivelheadvacuumevise.aspx Rubber vice]  The vice is on the normal workbench.  The rubber attachments are stored in the lab storage area
 
* 200x & 500x magnifying scopes
 
* Adjustable Pin holder for scopes
 
* Plug Followers
 
* Basic Pick Set
 
* Bump keys
 
* Pin containers for re-pinning locks
 
* Lots of locks
 
 
 
== LockCop ==
 
 
 
The goal of LockCop is to create a system to help guide an investigator through the process of lock forensics.  This involves cataloging locks as well as setting up cases to investigate.  Some planned features are:
 
 
 
* Web Based
 
* Authentication with groups
 
* Assistance with Cataloging control locks
 
* Ability to create cases
 
* Assist with recording pictures
 
* Assist with recording notes
 
* Wizard to help with questions involving cases
