Bonsai Exhibition

Posted by Thomas Weaver on Sunday, October 25, 2009, In : Bonsai 
So today I went to a bonsai exhibition at the Yokosuka Cultural Center. It was pretty cool. If you want to see some pictures click on the Bonsai link above.
This exhibition was a perfect example of a difference between the American culture and the Japanese culture. I was the only non-Japanese person at the exhibit. Most of the people knew maybe a word or two of English but they would still come up to me and see if I had any questions. Then this elderly gentleman came up and he knew some Engli...

I hate horrible leadership

Posted by Thomas Weaver on Monday, October 19, 2009, In : Navy 
This is not about locks at all just a rant about the navy. Why is it that the navy has such horrible leadership? In my going on 6 years in the navy I have worked for tons and tons of different people yet only 2 of them would be considered good leaders in the civilian world. One of which was the departmental Master Chief for AIMD on the USS George Washington while the ship was in San Diego in the summer of 2008 I think his last name was Duncan but I'm not sure. The other was MMC Sanborn my sec...

Master DG disassembled

Posted by Thomas Weaver on Friday, October 16, 2009, In : Locks 
So after reading something about the DG on LP101 I decided to disassemble one of mine because on of the guys on there disassembled one and it had no security pins in it. I could have sworn by the feel and actions of this lock I disassembled that it had at least one spool inside but as it turns out it has no spools and it is master keyed as you can see in the picture above. I was actually quite surprise to see the master wafers in there but they are there on the pins 2-4. I was under the impre...

Nothing New

Posted by Thomas Weaver on Friday, October 2, 2009,
Nothing new going on in this part of the world. Still no word back from Abloy so the protected part of the site loses the password in 1 month and 2 days unless I get word from Abloy between now and then. I am also seriously considering getting into amateur radio but won't be able to get my license until I get back to the states unless TIARA does the exams sometime between now and when I get back. Stay tuned for udpates.

About Me


Hmmm. I am(was) a sailor in the US navy but I am also one of the few sailors that can actually sail a sailboat since I have one of those. I am no longer in the navy but I will leave the last line there to get the veteran vote. I now work at Dupont as a Power control room operator. The biggest hobby of mine at the present time is picking locks and I am slowly getting better at it. I am currently looking for materials to build my own welder to teach myself how to weld. I am married to Crystal and we have one daughter and we are having a son soon (or if you read this after Januaryish 2011 we a son). Yeah not much to say.
