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 don’t understand the point of having a key pin rounded on both ends. That just seems like it makes things easier, not harder.

  2. Hello ! can i get a kit please i'm new to pick locking world 😀 i find it very interesting ! PS: we don' have pick locking kitin my country

  3. that thing wouldn't turn ccw at all before I sent it to you. I am curious though… You are showing this lock but I haven't seen any of the other 15 locks I sent you. did you get the big package?

  4. I had an idea about a lock. It's an upside down door lock that springless. Therefore you can't get in with regular picking. The key would be magnetic and bring the pins up setting them in the correct position. The lock would be in a door and wouldn't be able to be shaken. Any idea on this or if it's already been made? Thanks

    1. I think I can picture what you are talking about but there are several weak points, if it could even be made. You could make a magnetic pick that would be weak enough to lift the key pins but not the driver pins, and then just lift all the key pins up above the shear line and leave the driver pins at the bottom.

      There is a magnetic lock called the Evva MCS which is pretty interesting. It uses magnetic discs. There are methods of picking it, though.

  5. I"ve seen those double sided rounded key pin in stock yale mortise cylinders. They're probably like that so manufacturing can be faster.

  6. With those pins in there, I would have expected it to take considerably longer to pick. Do you think you may have been exceptionally lucky on this attempt?

  7. I like picking locks as a puzzle, because it relaxes me. However i don't know where to find/buy more locks to play with. I feel weird asking a locksmith for used locks to learn picking. He might think I'm a burglar or something… Any tips that doesn't break the bank?
