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 have this lock now. Dont know who you sent it to but someone sent it to me…( the fiend )…I opened it at 3:10    well ok that really should read 90 days and 3:10…. but I opened it   three times….and the t pin in the fifth slot had a wafer in it….kinda like you see it a lock pinned for a master key….just wanted to let you know that your evil ways gone on and on….lol….

  2. Bill, thank you for your videos, they are so inspirational and you are a true master.  Having just retired I have taken up my childhood fascination with locks and tried my hand at picking for the first time.  I recently bought a job lot of 24 padlocks from eBay and have worked through two thirds of them, simple 4 pin Squires and STA-LOKs without difficulty but there were also some Master and Yale locks and one Brazilian lock 'Papiaz' that I was having no success with.  Late last night having come back from the gym I picked up one of the Master locks, got a false set, found a security pin, and then had the experience of feeling and seeing the tension bar go counter clockwise and the lock open. Such an amazing experience to feel in control of these actions … all from watching your clips.Thank you.  I then romped through the other Masters and the Brazilian but have not yet managed the two Yales (difficult keyway!).  
    Two questions … when manufacturers mark locks as anti-pick does that just mean they have security pins? Clearly they would not stop you!  Secondly, I would love to see the pins in these brass padlocks but there seems no way of opening them .. how do they manage to make all the internal workings in what seem like sealed units?
    Best wishes, Gareth

  3. Another fine picking job Bill.
    Personally I'd be afraid to attack a lock by the Norwegian Lock Picker that guy is brutal! 

  4. Great video as usual Bill. And good timing on mentioning Dan Morris' wonderful picks!  I just got mine today and they are exquisite!!  If anyone is looking to get some, drop him a line at onithius@gmail.com:)

  5. Bill, could you check if that T pin will fit into one of the construction ball holes??  If it does it will surely lock up the cylinder.
    Interesting idea about the cut out.

  6. Great picking Bill. He sure knows how to make things difficult for you…. and to use your own evilness against you is brilliant, could see you were not expecting that. Great picking again buddy ;o))))

  7. Maybe it's just me, but mistakes and flying parts are very entertaining! It may be time for a "Bill's Blunders" compilation vid.
