Try replacing a door latch at -10c
Try unlocking a car with inside the door tools at the same temp. Had to end up using air wedges to unfreeze teh door shut and then apply those oxygen activated 'hand warmers' to the side of the door to heat up the insides enough to move linkages without breaking something.

Y'know. Locksmithing was nasty and hard at times. but I only worked weekends and evenings when I got paid double time. I think I made the wrong choice

Why did you pick locksmithing?

It's physical cryptography. Plus they were hiring, needed someone that knew which end of a soldering iron to hold as access control systems (swipe to enter stuff) had just started being in reach for stuff like the exterior doors for manufacturing sites to secure the outer doors and restrict access to the 'secure zones' such as the mainframe rooms as they were called.

Basic lock stuff is pretty straight forward, there's a number of doohickies that need to rise to a specific to that lock (you hope) amount and then the plug turns. After that, it can get odd fast.
The keys you see in movies that they use on Nuclear Launch scenarios, look closely, if it says MEDECO on the keyhead (also called the Bow (like a bend at the waist, not an arrow launcher) then it's the real type. MEDECO is one of the largest high security keyways in the US and they really do have the contracts for those purposes.
There are kits out there to put those locks into cars. Can you imagine being that paranoid? Like I said, it can get odd fast.

So your choices are being some panty sniffing sissy lala versus a hard ass jar head...not much of a choice if you ask me. Glad I chose wisely ;)
Sniffing panties is very satisfying passtime. There are medical benefits too.

Been there, done that. Now I write on the script, date, time & who I talked to.
I'm usually pretty anal about record keeping (nooooooo, who would have guessed) but this time I had a case in one hand going in the pot, another one coming out, a shoelace caught in my chair wheel and a small fire about to start on the bench as I left the paper towel I used to take cardwax off teeth too close to the alcohol torch.

It was a fun day.

I bought an 04 A8L as a mechanics special , it was left abandoned in the middle of an intersection, then purchased at an auction. I put so much work into this car, its an amazing car. I replaced the whole front fender, bumper.. painted them.. valve cover gasket. I had it purring, I was using it for deliveries and then one day, the heat went cold and it started overheating.. Stuck thermostat.. only problem is the thermostat on this engine is behind the timing belt, so you have to take off the bumper, radiators, cooling fans, and timing belt.. I got the thermostat in, but the tensioner apparently came loose and the timing belt jumped a few teeth when I started it, I havent dug in further.

I've yet to learn to write while holding the pen in my mouth. Joni EareksonTada won't return my calls asking to be taught.

I think you'll have better luck if you use some mashroob this time. You'd be convinced of your success at any rate.
