Do NOT get this ripoff. Several $5 cores, a couple of plastic followers that come in a $8 repinning kit (with more pins than this comes with), and a $30 cutaway is not a good investment. Bets on how long before this vendor to starts to post astroturf comments on this like they've done on all of their other drops?

So what would you recommend instead of this?

pick up a half inch wooden dowel, a small chainsaw file and a few cores from your local hardware store (a real one, not a big box) and give them a couple of extra bucks for a small baggie full of the pins and springs they'd use to repin them. You're gonna be out ~$30 and have more to practice with. You can pick up a foot of half inch OD vinyl tubing too if they sell it by the foot. Cut the dowel into ~3" lengths, and use the chainsaw file to cut a groove into one end. That'll help you align pins and springs with the bible when re-pinning non removable top cores. You can also cut a variety of notches into the ends of other ones to deal with various cores so you have a follower for anything you need. If you don't have a proper hardware store, the big box will sell a ~$10 repinning kit that will come with a plastic plug follower for the pins, and you can buy a core there too, although you might need to ask a sales minion for it.

This is too expensive for what it is. If you want to train yourself on different kinds of driver pins, just get a Sparrows Revolver for $39, and you'll have even more pinning options than with this in a less bulky form factor. (you won't have the different key ways though, but it doesn't really make a huge difference in my opinion)

All very similar, very easy locks with low tollerances. Would be better to have a simple lock, a bi-lock, a wafer lock, a simple disc detainer and maybe some European locks so the difficulty is not so low. This set is far too easy to teach anything.

but then they couldn't mark it up to sell it to folks who don't know what they're buying
