My vises are made by Panavise, a U.S. Company.  The one with the wide jaws is the model 350.  The smaller one is the model 301. Both have the 312 Base mount – www.panavise.com



  1. Fantastic site. Plenty of useful info here. I am sending it to a few friends ans also sharing in delicious. And obviously, thanks for your effort!

  2. Bosnianbill, i was gutting the core of the American 5200, and stupidly forgot to put the key pins back in before inserting into the bible. all of the top pins have now fallen into the core, how do i fix this?

  3. I'm a super beginner- just ordered my first picks and torsion wrenches from Peterson- and I have this same lock (sans flag logo). Since I'd long since lost the key, I'd thought I'd start out with this- then you mentioned spools.

    The moans of horror only got louder when you started pulling out serrated pins hand over fist.
