(930) Die Grinder versus Locks


LockLab is Fan funded!  Help pay for stuff to review, break and talk trash about, and maybe even give away when we’re done.  Join the Tribe!

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. Bill, it seems that the thickness of the shackle matters. What if you needed a stronger shackle in a smaller diameter?

  2. This video depressed me somewhat….. I tell everyone I know – “buy a decent lock. Pay a few dollars more.” (there is a movie title in there somewhere..) and now I see that even the best of the best can be screwed over with a $200 die grinder in seconds. Is there NO way to secure our belongings?

  3. Love the videos Bill , but it kills me to see all those locks cut up. I only have a few locks to practice on . lol .
    Keep the videos coming , they are helping me.


  4. Any criminal stupid enough to do this without a 6″ bench vise is clearly going to leave plenty of DNA behind (and a finger or 2).
    I do wonder how many of the padlocks would let you remove the chain with 1 cut or is a piece of kmart chain really twice as durable as a boron shackle?

  5. Finally, I got the first comment. I just started picking locks for a hobby and have already gotten the first 3. Thanks for great information! Thus chanel rocks. Ps. I could use some tools. I'm using homemade ones as of now. I would be gracious and pay shipping if you have an extra set lying around. Serious!

  6. I was watching a video of two guys melting spanners and long bolts with electricity and was thinking about how hard it would have been to do it with padlocks.
