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. +bosnianbill I recommend putting a larger washer on the tubular pick. the washer that comes with it doesn't have a wide enough diameter to keep the wires from being bent. I noticed the wires kept hanging on stuff when i'd transport it so I went to home depot and got a larger washer to put on it.

  2. Is the tool you used the 7mm, 7 pin version?

    I am looking to buy one of these tools and there are a few options 7 / 7.5 / 7.8mm.


  3. Bill I noticed there is not set screw in that ring. Lost or removed with a reason? I also noticed in a different video you mentioned that you modded that southord tool, can you explain what you did to it. I would assume putting a 3rd O ring or maybe a tighter/smaller one. Thanks

  4. Can you do more videos on tubular locks? I've watched most of the videos you've made and I've only seen 1 video that discusses that topic! Why? Make more videos! As a subscriber I wish you could! I'm also interested in making a makeshift tubular lock pick. Pretty please! lol!

  5. Bob, most of the inexpensive tubular safe locks do not have security pins in them, so the tool should work. The biggest "trick" to the tool is tensioning the nut that tensions the needles. Try various tensions & see if that helps. Also, do NOT oil the needles on the tool. They should be clean and dry.
