About Donnie
I have been collecting various padlocks for over 30 years, have many. I like push key padlocks, Scandinavian locks, Junkunc locks, & as of late Gougler RD200 combination clicker's . I have recently gotten about a dozen of these & hope that some help can be gathered from this forum...I have code #'s. I will contribute as much as I can, but I am a novice compared to most of you , & my computer skills are limited..such as I have no idea of how to post a picture from my computer to this forum. I hope someone will guide me to help me get started...I am 70 years old & did not take typing in school as I had no desire to be a typist when I grew up :-)
