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. The first lock I picked was an Abus without a model number. It looks basically the same. It's definitely an easy pick compared to other Abus, given that I was able to pick it within 30 minutes on my first ever try to pick a lock. Getting the false set is really quick and the spools just make it really easy. Even easier than locks with standard pins if you ask me!

  2. You're doing more challenge​ locks. Either you're sick of people complaining or you're trying to get to one that you like. 😛
    Great picking! 🙂

  3. I don't know why it is, but when I'm confronted with a Yale type keyway I always reach for a top of the keyway pry bar.
    I find it easier to have a little bit of extra space just to work around the warding, I find I keep rubbing against a bottom of keyway wrench and it's hard to get to the back pins.

  4. I'm teaching myself after watching your channel for weeks, I'm picking my own locks. It when I pick room locks it turn but doesn't engage the turning mechanism on the other side of the door

  5. A question just occurred to me, how does temperature affect lock picking. Aside from the affect the temperature would have on the picker, would having a lock at very cold or hot temperatures make it easier or harder to open?
