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. Hey, does Schlage really pronouce as "shlegg"? It looks German to me. Shouldn't it pronouce as it is written, i.e. "shla:ge"?

  2. Bill, I have several Everest IC cores in their cylinders. I can pick them open, but I cannot for the life of me get them out of the cylinder. Is there a trick to removing the IC core without a control key?

  3. Bill I'm having a hard time feeling when a pin has been picked will the key pin move freely up and down if I turn the lock upside down ? Or if I've picked multiple pin stacks they all seem to move freely and shake when I shake the lock , or am I just over picking these pins ? A piked pin will have no spring pressure right. ? 

  4. The original Everest patents expired last year.  They released the updated Everest 29 five years in advance.  (It's called Everest 29 because it's patent protected through 2029)

  5. I want to get started with lockpicking but i have got a question:
    Is it possible to unlock locked doors I mean the doors are Not only closed but locked with the key three times turned around?

  6. Fantastic tips there Bill. Still not picked the old BEST lock you gave me for my old lock collection, any tips on picking that buddy?

  7. Everest can be challenging due to that lower locking pin. I have cut down a key to a point that it engages the pin but still allows a pick in. You can cut a slot or a hole to put a tension tool in and it works great.
