(655) Abus Padlock Machined Open (Thanks MantukaSNK!)

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. Wow Thanks, this is very convenient timing since I just got a cut-away yesterday. @ 4:55, the "last pin" knowledge I gained from this video, will allow me to repin a cutaway. I am VERY glad, because the pinning was so flat and the first pin was the last pin so it was pretty much impossible to SPP, because it was so easy to accidentally set the sheerline while trying to set the first pin. After releasing the core (before removing), I stopped to say thanks. Now I'm off to repin.

  2. Hey bill, I have never seen such an Abus nor that cheap plastic key before. I may check with Abus whether this one is really from them or maybe a fake. It could be one of their most cheap models though not sure. Cool video thanks! Adrian

  3. May I throw something out for your consideration?  Could it be that the guide pin, for lack of a better term, in that ABUS is causing the core to gain even more tolerance than usual?  I know that most standard ABUSes usually go around the tolerance issue by putting serrated or spools in one or more pin positions to create some tension on the core, but I have to admit that this is ingenious if combined with spools or serrated pins.

    Also, a question.  If you had a six pin core, and you wanted to replicate this technique on a pin (for the sake of argument, pin 6), about how difficult would you think it would be at first glance?

  4. That's kinda disappointing, I have a $7 Abus with 4 pins, and even that one has security pins. That one can be rocked open in less than a second, though. I wish they would have put at least one in that lock.
