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. Thanks for the vid! What keyway would that be? Most Lockwoods I've seen all have it (and the all cheapo looks too). Trying to find some with a tighter keyway but can't spend too much money (doesn't help some of the lockwood padlocks I've seen have had their lockwood core replaced with a cheaper core too) and don't want to go spending money on not-so-great locks seeing I don't have many and haven't had the game to ask locksmiths for old junk locks because of the stigma of locksport/lockpicking.

  2. Hey Bill, if you are interested I have some Lockwoods that are basically identical to this one, but have much, MUCH more evil keyways. 

  3. Hey Bill, love the videos as always. I have tried to buy the Peterson tension wrenches you use in the uk but its impossible. ill do you a deal.. ill swap you a couple of UK locks for a couple of picks. ill pay the postage too, hows that sound?

  4. That's a dead standard lockwood, I'm an Australian locksmith and we see these daily. They as you say are manufactured to extreme tolerances, those chamfers you see on the drivers are to ensure the lock still works once it gets a little wear(the core pushes them up into the gallery on that chamfer). Watch out for any new lockwood stuff though, some of it is ridiculously hard because they've started loading the locks with spools top and bottom.

  5. Nice to see a Lockwood up close – thanks Bill. 
    BB guns are nothing to worry about – however, if they are playing 'Joan of Arc' and setting her on fire, now that could be a problem. ;)
