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. Great vid! I’m a newbie. After watching several videos, getting the kick start pick set from sparrow and breaking my w rake on a stubborn padlock I’m going to make my own. Wondering what the best templates are to use?

  2. I can’t thank you enough for the education you’re giving me. I’ll be retired from the Army in a little less than a year and this may actually be something I get into professionally.

  3. Hey Bill! Good show on a solid looking lock. Hope you’re feeling better, stay cool.
    Thanks for the videos!

  4. Hey bill I am a new fan/subscriber and I just had a question about getting a lockpicking set started, I am unable to buy any complete sets as I am low on money but I have a garage with some machinery that I could probably build the tools myself, and my two part question is what type of metal would be best to make lock picks and how thin should I make them? Thanks for everything and have a great day:)

    1. Hey, I’m new too, and Bill has put up a wealth of videos for us newbies. Go up to Locklab University, over to Tool Zone, and there’s a brilliant 5 video series in Make your own tools. It’s all there, and Bill walks you right through it. Good luck building, and picking.

  5. I remember you had lock with tiny magnets in the bible as driver pins. I just came to think if that is possible to breach with a bump key attack. Then it might not be that big a problem that they effect each other.
