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, love your videos, and your beginner series has taught me practically everything I know about picking. A couple questions however.I love how you made the video where you discussed tension ranges, and it was very informative, but I'm having a similar issue with pick pressure/placement, I don't know how much pressure it takes to set a pin, and usually can hardly tell if im pushing up on a pin or I've slipped off the face of the pin and amm just raking on the top of the lock between the pin and the warding. Should I be leveraging the pick on the warding somewhere, or do I simply raise and lower pins with the pick free floating. Sometimes I feel as if it takes too much pressure to raise a pin. How can I reliably tell when I've got a steady hold of a pin and it's ready to be raised? Is it just a matter of practicing the feel? Thanks a lot for your videos Bill, they're extremely helpful. 

    P.S. I've mastered my MasterLock no. 3 and I've moved on to my ACE brand 50mm lock (4-5 spool, 1 reg pin).

  2. I have a couple locks I really enjoy, that I would like to share. Do you have a network that shares locks? Sometimes people give them to me, but buying them gets expensive. I would like to swap them with people if possible. Thanks

  3. Wow, that is a beautiful lock. I wish I had one of those to use as a practice lock. Where would be a good place to look to get one shipped to the US, EBay I assume? What model would I search for? Great video btw. Keep them coming!

  4. I'm sure you pull up the video from your home CCTV system and laugh as she is shoveling snow and your on the golf coarse in shorts and a T-shirt. lol
