Hey, guys! I have seen an infochart and now I am interested in the art of lockpicking. Thing is, I dunno where to start, nor how to make my own picks. I don't have machines, nor tools (for example saw, or "working the wood" kind of thing. Mind shedding some light?

So I bought this RC a few years back. It was pretty cheap and it's design is simple. It doesn't have steering, but it has two electromotors of wich left one powers left two wheels, and the one on the right controls the right two wheels.
The wheels are big and made so the car can also ride while flipped on the roof side, and that's pretty neat. However what I hate about it and would like to change, are the wheels made of cheap plastic, one of them actually broke after running it over multiple stairs..
I don't know where to start, and out of which material can I make new wheels for this RC car, so it's more durable? I was also considering adding suspension inside each wheel but don't know how good of an idea is that actually.

I'd like to get into crafts in general, but one of the more specific things would be woodworking. I want to craft some masks, always liked them, dunno why.
Anyway, I've been looking at some tools but I'm not exactly sure what to get other than the broad gouges, mallets, chisels, adzes. Does anyone on /diy/ practice woodworking, and do you know any decent/useful tools for a beginner?

How would one bore a straight polished 10mm hole through an inch of granite, and have a rough(Although I'm fine if it's all polished!) 4 inches of 8mm hole past the 10mm hole? I enjoy collecting/making pens(Especially fountain) as a kind of self-sufficient hobby, and want to try to make one using granite. It would be a very simple design. I'm pulling numbers out of my ass here, but say you have a bit over 5 inches of granite. Drill an 8mm hole through nearly all of it, around 5 inches of it. Expand the inch closest to your hand to 10mm, and cut an ebonite feed to fit in it. It's bigger than the 8mm section, so can't get lost in it. Not a particularly handy design, but it would hold a lot of ink, and you could pull out the feed to fill it up.
