(147) Antique Russwin Rim Cylinder

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. Rekeyed an old cabin for a friend. Had one of these exactly on the front door. Did not have the original key but I still have the lock. Had to put some loose juice in it to pick. Almost seized. Havent been able to get a date that it is from. Just hang on to it.

  2. Another awesome old lock. Never seen one with the face like that. The historical value is much greater than the picking value. If you still happen to have it, I would trade you for it. 🙂

  3. I have only seen that kind of key once. REALLY really cool lock mate! I am not crying because you picked it but I still think picking the antiques is some kind of "no go" but sometimes you just need to do it 🙂
