Such a strongly worded response is not what one expects from Mr Edwards. I hope he's feeling well.
As to the points made in this post... First of all, it was BBE that said,
This implies that BBE thinks it can be done in 5 minutes using commonly available (carbide) bits. As BBE is an expert, I tend to take his word for such things. BBE implied that the test does not allow the use of carbide bits.
As for failing to comprehend, it was BBE that said that the original Medeco locks were not recalled/replaced because only 7 Lock Technology tools were sold, and they were somehow taken out of circulation. My point is that the outlawing of technology does not make the technology disappear. That point seems fairly clear.
I've never seen a locksmith on this forum say "The Medeco design is drill resistant for at least 15 minutes using limited tools." I've seen them say that they are a bear to drill, and they break bits doing it, and that they hate to waste a medeco cylinder. None of them seem to be saying that, with proper tools and skill, they can be drilled in less than15 minutes.
When a facilities manager is working on a security plan, they really have to know these things so they can plan accordingly. All the locksmiths here will agree that the idea of a lock is to disuade a crook, or at least slow the crooks down enough to catch them. Some will even say that one of the lock's purpose is to simply provide proof of forceful entry.
