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. Rather than pestering people with a quad copter, I got my FCC amateur extra license and an going for a full blown commercial GROL, and then a Class A license. I bought an old brown era Heathkit antenna tuner, which has a lot of silver and silver plated parts in it. Bear in mind, something like that is going to be 35 years old and full of tarnish, dirt, and schmutz. My brother was genuinely fascinated with the massive coils, and caps that can handle 1000s of volts without arcing. I ask him to look under the sink for some silver polish, and he starts reading off stuff he is finding. He came across some Turtle Wax fine buffing compound. Polish up the internal curves of those Bogota, wave, worm, and hook picks with Mitchell Abrasive cord, then a final polish with yarn, impregnated with some of that Turtle Wax fine buffing compound. They polish up like little mirrors! Just what the doctor ordered! I found one of the cheapie keep and honest man honest Master Locks dad bought for the back gate. So far, any and every pick in my kits can open one of those PsOS. I don’t get these challenge locks that would be risky to use as a viable lock, without having a power drill and a jig handy. The Kwikset Smartkey falls squarely into that category too, and it’s a sh*tty lock.
