    Can anyone accurately identify this padlock? It still works wonderfully! It was used in my grandfather's garage for decades!

      Brands of locks have their own "personalities". When my locksmith/gunsmith neighbour taught me in the '60's, Yale was the mid-range of difficulty picking. Master locks were tight & fairly easy to pick after you knew their "feel". Cheap, loose locks could be the hardest, because it was hard to keep the tumblers in place, but they were easy to break with a hammer. I never did anything illegal with my new talent, but did pick-up a few $'s from people who locked their planes at the pumps. LOL !

      Phil, at one time, I could take a pile of Yales & average 10 sec. each to pop.
