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. Picked a best lock to control today. Its old and didnt have all 7 pins in it but kinda counts, I guess… Cant budge this damn Abus I have though. 

  2. On the thickness of your pick, Bill, is .023" the thinnest you would go before you started having issues with the pick deforming while picking?

  3. I had good luck on this keyway with the pick you called the Sparrow S-rake. I polished up the the S-rake really good and it fits in the keyway without having to twist and turn a pick in there. I was lucky to be able to rake the WC keyway pretty good. Otherwise I can't pick it worth a damn.

  4. Yeah, that's the way it goes sometimes. there are some days when every lock i touch pops open. Other days I can't rake open a Master #3 to save my life. I brag about the "good" days and ignore the "bad" days. Kinda like golf…

  5. I learned something from watching your video. I will try the fit the pick inside, then make sure all the pins are released. I mostly started out by angling a pick in, the twisting a little bit. It was too hard of a thing to do, especially for a rookie. Now I'm going to try your way of getting pick in.

  6. I'm still in the rookie stages, but I have a WC core and some WA cores. They are rather similar. It is probably a little bit hard for a rookie like me. After many hours spread over a couple weeks I picked some of them to control and operating. I was on a roll one night and was determined to pick at least one before I went to bed (good thing it was a weekend) and I managed to use a pick gun, and then finish off the locks with a hook. I opened 3 locks in just 1 minute each. And now I can't haha

  7. You have officially been infected with the pick-to-control virus. The incubation period is usually about 10 days, but you've cut it down to about 9. Nicely done. 😀
