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. Picking spools and dropping other already set pins reminds me of walking up an icy slope. One step forward and two steps back. Great vid. Very helpful as are all your vids. You have the nack of/for teaching.

  2. ARGH! I've been stuck on the Master No. 532 forever. Not really, I got my first picks today but I've picked 3 other locks I bought today. Do you have a video with this lock?

  3. Nice one Bill, your approach and techniques are brilliant, Im loving your videos. Terrific informative commentary. Keep up the great work  

  4. All I got to say is bravo. Thank you for this information. 😀 I'm very happy, you just basically gave me all the information that I needed to pick my Brinks Marine Max Security lock. I had a tough time opening this lock, and now, I have it open, and opened it many times in the past hour. -Subbed-
