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. Bill, where did you get those solid brass followers!? Their value as a tool aside they are stuning works of art! Where can I get a set?

  2. Maybe think about the strong pin, I’ve tried it and they go wrong. Have you seen the cannon balls that where made in to bits but joined with a link, they where made to take out the masts. Very fiddly but so hard to move. Good luck. Andi

  3. This is for Bill. Try placing a bottom of the key way tension tool in the lock to work off of instead of the sloped ledge.

  4. My advice??? Uhhhhhhhh, a revolver is the most reliable sidearm you can choose, since all common malfunctions are practically impossible.
    Mechanical issues(such as with "timing" or, basically, "cylinder alignment")7 are possible; but can be checked for, and will give warning signs long before they occur.

    Traditional semiautomatics are faster to reload, but most people will not actually carry an extra magazine.

  5. I like the idea of a part of a screw in a threaded chamber. If the fit was just right that could be more challenging than a serrated pin!

  6. I suggest that you at least replace the springs in the 2 chambers that the drivers didn't reach the shear line which makes it easier to pick because those drivers are never in the equation. It will greatly improve the pick resistance if every pin is working properly.
