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. WOW! SO I can use just about anything so long as it works? Interesting. I have never heard of a square spool. And using a threaded piece of a screw to make serrated pins of any length I need. Good work keeping that Junk Yard Dog from biting you.

  2. my #1 question, which i can't seem to determine by watching the videos is: How much tension to use? I have no idea if i'm not using enough, or using too much, but tension seems to be my #1 problem. Is there a way to demonstrate the correct amount?

  3. Nice I was just picking. I finally got this Yale padlock opened today. I did not realize that the pins are cut so deep. Just happy I got a open today it has been in my family for as long as I can remember. I tried making a key a few times with no success. Is there anyone looking to make a key for this lock I will pay for it and send you blank keys with it.

  4. Hey Bill that was my lock with for the poor writing and manufacturing don't have alot to work with just old junk locks from eBay. the steel anti drill pins were actually titaniumtitanium rod.good job ,too bad #6 was buggered up. thanks can't wait to see Gage's luck picked. I put the screwdriver in for the tail piece not sure what I was thinking.
