(1162) Lee’s Challenge

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 beg to differ….this would be a viable challenge lock in the UK……but only have four active pins…..I thought the “magic ” in this lock was the loose set screw on pin 2. Jeff R. saw it also…….live and learn……

  2. I would suggest putting holes in the core that will catch that t-pin if the wafer isn't in the bible. Looks like there's already one on one side (probably a hole for construction balls) but not the other, if Bill had turned the core the other way he might have gotten trapped

  3. Love always seeing a new intro. Longer pins every other one with stiffer, more powerful springs behind them and snag points.

  4. Improvement?: Populate the core with non-rotating split pins. That way, a pin by pin pick will only lift one half of the pin at a time and in effect make the lock a whole heck of a lot more difficult to pick. Of course a great deal of precision and patience would be required to produce pins of such a nature, but I believe it would be well worth it in the end. Don't you?
