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 would be impressed if you made a tension wrench out of the can as well. no reason why you shouldn't be able to. you dont put that much tension on it.

  2. I made a video to add to this "series"…
    I hope this is an appropriate and acceptable way to mention it. I'm not sure on etiquette for this sort of stuff. I blame public education.

  3. I wish they'd change the brand name to "Toylock" as opposed to Masterlock. I'm sure anyone who is into picking has tried to explain to just about all their friends and family members that buying bybuying one of these pieces of garbage they might as well be putting a sign on their possessions that says "FREE!"

  4. I got my 5th successful SPP on a No. 3 just as you were saying No. 3 there near the end. I started my tension when you clamped your lock in. I wonder how fast I'll tire of these homemade tools? Thanks for getting me this far, and in advance for all I'll learn in the future!

  5. Serious question…best one EVER! How did a number 6 masterlock at the beginning of this…turn into a number 3 at the end???!!!???

  6. Hey Bill. love your channel and watch it daily. I have an old masterlock no.1 that is giving me so much trouble. I cant get that thing open no matter what I try. It opens with the key just fine so I know the lock is not seized up. I cannot get some of the pins to set.

  7. it probably seems super easy to you but it takes someone very knowledgeable, skilled, and inventive to do this. it's not like the cat food lid opened the lock by itself.

    I'd like to see you open a lock using regular objects that you don't have to modify (ie no cutting something into the shape of a pick) and without using ANY actual picking tools (including the wrench thing you use to turn the lock)

  8. I've bypassed the key area altogether and used a small part of a coke can to release the locking mechanism on the top side of the lock. It works quite well, although I'm not sure if you can still do this as I haven't picked a lock in many years. They may have fixed this

  9. my brother and i used to pick locks for fun as kids many many years ago in all different ways, what always worked the best was the key like item on the lid of KAM sandwich meat in a can, we rounded it off on the sidewalk and were able to pick almost any padlock, trophy case locks, bike locks and video game locks. It's been a lifetime ago and seeing your videos I would like to see you post one using this method if you already haven't.
