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. Hi Bill, I feel so much better now!!!!!!! Just bought my first set of picks and been trying out on my front door with frustratingly no success. This is the cylinder in my front door! Interestingly I got it to rake once but only in the wrong direction. 

  2. Those brass clips can be removed. Again with a locksmith tool and my locksmith here has that tool. Those rings are pressed into place with a machine. You can remove them and get new ones but the new ones are chrome plated and you have to crimp them in place after installing them. This feature is supposed to give you some tamper resistance. Video comming soon!
