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. It may not have been a mistake, the double actuator may have been needed for other locks, so while the single would open this one, if he'd filed the key down to a single, it may not have opened others.

  2. Love those old locks. Just wanted to mention that you should be able to lock that style of lock without a key. Just place the shackle into the lock body and push. When I was a kid we called them bicycle locks, which is what we used them for. Also wanted to thank you for all of the videos you have produced. Very well done, and the information and instructions you provide are first rate, along with your skill. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What I like about this video is the bolt nut affair holding your ward bi-pass keys. I may use a rivet instead so it still fits my carry kit. I don't think I have ran into even a Master warded lock in a decade but due to my undiagnosed OCB I Must be prepared. Of course the lock is nifty too.

  4. Cool old lock! I have a few just like it. My father, grandfather, and great grandfather are all retired from the RailRoad. I have all kinds of old railroad gear and a number of old locks.
