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. I've got a BEST interchangeable core lock that I'd love to pick to control (so I can rebuild it into a nice 6 pin padlock)…but so far I've only been lucky enough to get the padlock to open when bitch picked..

  2. Bill, I'm new at this picking too, and I got a BEST off ebay coming soon, NO Keys. Picking to Control is it Just the last 4 pins (back 4 pins) or All of them I got to pick?? (older lock I think) guessing will be a 6 pin.

  3. On a scale of 1-10, how tough are these to pick usually? I'm only about a week into picking (I have a lot to learn) and a Best lock stumped me today. MasterLocks are as easy as advertised. haha

  4. I just bought a core for a Best Lock that won't let any of my picks inside due to the very tight slant leading up to the key pins. Its a sharp angle and I have nothing that will work at that angle except my standard hook that is thin. Do you have any video on best lock "I-Cores" that I might have overlooked??

  5. Thanks for the links to these videos. I picked my Master Pro Series to control removed the cylinder and the pick and tension wrench. The bar is protruding and I would like to return the cylinder to use for practice. Sites are a little high for my skill level. Putting the core in the vice seems to put pressure on the bar. Any Suggestions? Great Videos.

  6. Dylan, if I still have it, its yours. I'm in Africa right now but return home in 3 weeks. Remind me again the 2nd week in March when I get home and I'll look around. Even if I don't have that particular one, I'm sure we can find SOMETHING. bill

  7. You bet! Now you know how to begin opening that little B…ch I sent to you. Still, Bitch picking is kind of cheating, I admit it – but open is open. In my business style counts for shit – Results are everything.
