As for the hearing the tumblers fall after you release tension, that is usually an indication for you applying too much torque. The sound that you're likely hearing is because the pins are getting locked within the cylinder because of the twisting motion. Maybe someone else can explain it better, but the end result it to just apply a little pressure.

It should be noted for the benefit of anyone else looking for similar information that, as Kristic stated, if after applying tension and attempting a bump, if you hear the pins falling, you're probably applying too much tension, but you're on the right track. If you DON'T hear anything falling, apply more tension or hit it harder.

It is very exciting with the first bump as it need lots of practice- so have a happy bumping for the near future.
Heh, just got my first bump! That was really addicting. I pretty much answered all my questions by myself. This forum was a great help.
