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. European locks look weird, but the basic wafer locks pick about the same as a pin tumbler locks. Abloy makes a few I can’t pick. That Vorax Monstrum is a nice piece of kit and probably the best value for the money, but I added the .015″ hooks & rakes, extra hooks & rakes in .025 and .015 inches, a Peterson .050 pry bar, the Mantis, warded picks, rocker keys, bypass tools & some Souber stuff, & a few Peterson picks. The 18 volt drill and a jig set is also handy & fast when I don’t feel like twiddling around, because 30-3000 people need through a locked door or gate to go make some money. Intel was famous for their ridiculously late payments to all their subcontractors. A telcom guy lost it one day & locked himself in the main telco/data room and started ripping out all the work his company did. He had screwed the door shut from the inside, so that was a forcible entry situation. I am more than happy to not try bashing down a blast rated fire door. It took Chandler PD over 4 hours to knock the door in with battering rams. I’d sure hate to owe Intel for a lost day of production.

  2. That lock looks a lot tougher than it really is. It would take me a lot longer to pick it, but I would eventually get er done.

  3. Bill – If you have access to some thermite, try burning through that super-tough motorcycle chain and lock. It would produce light and smoke but not much noise — and it should be fast. The thief could be gone much faster than when using a grinder.
