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. done my nut right in – means its frustrated me out of my mind, those 3 blade screws are also rare in the uk, also you held it the wrong way – remember we have the pins down in the uk

  2. It would have been funny if the trap pins were different on each side so taking apart would be useless least this one was the same… maybe in the future they will make them random on each side…that would make it even worse for those trying to get back into it to fix it. Would have really screwed you over Bill if this happen.

  3. "It does my nut in" = It does my head in, as in, I can't wrap my mind around this problem.
    It is used in many Counties in the UK. He is from Yorkshire and I am from Lancashire. Both Counties are next to each other 🙂 Cheers.

  4. I don't get it. To me it seems like these "traps" are just long spool pins with very high spring tension. They basically act as a second pair of top pins that should be able to be lifted back up with the right pick.
    Or am I missing something here?

  5. To reset the trap, couldn't you release tension and use a rake to shove all of the key pins up as high as they will go? Because the key pins have nowhere to go until they line back up on center with the bible, right?
