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 remember my old Yamaha dt moped, it had a key looking similar to this, but the lock was even worse, I could start it with a screw driver, I even started it with a popsicle stick once. Basically anything narrow enough to fit in the keyhole and strong enough to provide a bit of tension could start it.
    I bet someone with really strong nails could start it without any tools what so ever.

  2. That is no Motorcycle lock it is an older Datsun ignition lock.  One of the worst designs ever,  Us older locksmiths remember the days when it was not uncommon to replace several everyday.  

  3. Easy Pickens! Automotive locks usually intimidate people, but they are as you shown supper easy to pick. I have seen a popsicle stick used to pick a lock on a car door!!!
    That is why all most all newer cars have transponder encoded chip keys for the ignition

  4. Thats absolutely crazy!–no security there at all … 
     Bill, I'd also like to thank you, as my peterson lock picking set came in the mail a few nights ago, I havn't stopped fiddling with it all since! I ended up going with the GSP 20 piece, it seems to be a great kit per your recommendation to another fellow here on the tube a while back. 
    I had tried my first night to pick a Masterlock #1 but proved too difficult, I am now using an old deadbolt from a door I had laying around, so far I took all the pins out, besides 1+2, trying to get the feel for it slowly, especially the feel for the "binding" pin…. I hope to soon work my way up to 5 pins however I will take it slow to make sure I do it right and hone my skill as I go as I hear SPP is the way to go to actually improve your skill!.. the only thing I dislike about this particular deadbolt is that the cylinder itself is smaller than the shell, so it has "wobble room" inside the shell, so there is a lot of moving/clanking while trying to pick it, however I guess it will push my ears and feel that much further to pick up exactly what I am looking for… 

    Keep up the great videos my friend, now it's time to find a nice looking pinning tray and an affordable plug follower!
