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 am still working on my first challenge lock to send to you bill.  I'm trying to decide what kind of core I wanna put into it and how many pins.. it's a stock Gate House dead bolt cylinder… but I don't wanna use the stock core (Kwikset KW1 keyway) I want to try and make it difficult.

  2. Bill, can i ask the tolerances on the Followers? because if you keep complaining about it i could try to make some followers from brass that are perfect that they wont get stuck in locks.

  3. Hey bill do you know any sites in the netherlands or how to get a set of lockpicking tools ? . i now have one single hook but i have some padlocks and really want to try others ( keeps me busy on bored days 😛 ) Also nice videos really like watching you pick some locks .

  4. B.Bill have U had much luck w Snap Guns??? I purchased one two yrs ago & have over the time using its various tips & tensions on at least 50 types of locks, I only had 1 open. I'm a good picker & know what to feel for. I'm lost w the S Gun. 

  5. Thank Bill, glad you had some fun with it cause I didn't. Too crazy for my experience level. Looking forward to see what you'll put in it. 

  6. Nice picking Bill. I'm getting a box ready so I'll put in a set of tweezers like I use. I thought the plastic one would work, guess I was wrong LOL.
    WARNING: Box will have 4 challenge locks and a POS F series "compressible" Schlage cylinder along with Schlage cylinders to pass around. 
    To prevent the cylinder from moving when using spools, at standard driver should be used in one chamber.
