Locksmith craft, associated with the processing of various materials, is the most ancient of the crafts. Even before the “bronze” and “iron” ages, ancient craftsmen made utensils and weapons, jewelry and tools for cultivating the land with stone axes. They became the forerunners of modern locksmiths.
In our time, the main base for every locksmith is the possession of general locksmith operations, which are the “skeleton” of locksmith skills. These include marking, cutting, straightening, bending, cutting, filing, drilling, countersinking and reaming holes, threading, scraping, lapping and finishing, riveting and soldering. These operations are performed with manual and mechanized tools, which every locksmith should be able to use.
