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. It would be interesting to see these pins put into a clear acrylic lock and then try picking it. I'd love to see those special pins in action.

  2. Watching this has the same satisfaction as watching a movie with a good plot twist. Very creative. I wonder if this is patented and how is a key made for this kind of custom lock?

  3. Bill, I know you love tricks like this. But just imagine, these upper pins in a Assa, or maybe a Medeco? At that venture, a drill sounds like a good idea.

  4. Wow…great work bill. I never imagined a lock could be so detailed and thought out like a work of art. Genius.

  5. Hey bill sorry to bother you once more but I was wondering if mabye could send me a easy lock that you might not want if I gave you more info sorry to bother you

  6. Bosnianbill as in Bill from Bosnia and Herzegovina? Cool video by the way, and you showed them zebras for not subscribing ;-)

  7. I herd you use a couple of words I didn't quite understand them in their context. I think I figured out what you ment but it might be that that's what people are asking for when they say "more descriptive". As far as I'm concerned your videos are really the best I've seen as far as content and education. The two words I heard however were "feedback" and "warding". I took feed back to mean the amount of tension you feel on the pin when you don't know which you need to set next. And warding I took to mean the guts or inside of the lock that your pick may have been hitting. It was the video where you got a masterlock that had the flyleaf sticker on the back, yet the lock didn't have any real surprises for you. But as I said, great videos, just watching these have turned me into a novice (I literally hadn't ever picked a lock of any kind before yesterday) to picking simple masterlocks, like the no.3 you picked with a cat food lid lol. Thank you for the great videos. 

  8. I'm not a locksmith, but I have been picking for almost a year now and I do have some machining experience. Seeing pins like Flywheel's makes me want to try my hand at making a lock and maybe get into locksmithing. I have a thing for eccentric craftsmanship that provides a function :)

  9. How would go about learning how to pick locks? I've been watching lock picking videos for the past 3 hours and it looks like a fun hobby to get into. Any advice?

  10. Can you send me a old pad lock that I can use because master locks sucks and I need a decent pined pad lock to use so pealse let me know if you have one

  11. I love your channel! I figured I would try my hand at it and a set from sparrow. I feel like a kid at Christmas waiting for customs to clear the shipment and I can try my first lock. Anyway I love you videos they are a locksmith class of sorts in its own right. Thank You!
