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. A pin-in-pin is one thing, but when they are also spools or serrated, that’s awesome.

  2. I watch all your videos but just never understand how any of this serration, spools etc make it any more effective, you just pick it so easily

  3. The pin in pin stuff never ceases to amaze me. Nice picking! I'm surprised you didn't swap picks with everything binding up so much. It made ME nervous!

  4. Wow awesome work on the lock i sent you bill. I am absolutely grinning from ear to ear. Even though I was kinda hoping for a whipped by. It has still made my day that you picked my challenge lock. Thank you. 😁😁😁😁👍👍

  5. That was a really cool lock, I would love to see how it was made. Lock picking had started as just a small hobby for me but seeing all this amazing work from people is making me want to learn how to make my own locks. Thanks for all the inspiration.

  6. We're a few weeks into Autumn here now Bill. But still botheringly hot some days! I really gotta pull my finger out and get my lock to you!

  7. Bill, maybe I'm missing something, but if the actuator has to come off anyways, every time, why isn't that the first step before clamping? Is it to show you haven't tampered with the lock? I've probably heard you say 100 times "the actuator is hitting the vise".

  8. Sweet job from a fellow Aussie & buddy.👍🏽🇦🇺 I was hoping for a whip'd but Bill is too old and wise for alien Aussie trickery it seems!🤣🍺😎🇦🇺

  9. Dark Arts, blown away by those pins, and the methodical placement of pins and the "alien tech"! I think you would have had a "whipped by", had Bill not been…well… Bill! He's a tough cookie! Excellent challenge lock!

  10. i started off with this channel being one of the guys who just wanted to find a good high security lock but was one of the typical "cut it with a zip disk viewers" ive grown to enjoy your content very much. thank you for making such good content. im starting off with my first set up here as soon as it arrives. im excited 🙂
