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. This looks a lot like the CCL Sesame which I thought was the origination of this design. Do you know whether CCL is taking from Abus or the other we around? Can you send a picture of the wheels on the Abus if you still have it? I wonder how they compare to the Abus?

  2. Wrap the remains in and send it back to ABUS – they should be ashamed to dishonor "made-in-germany".
    Just kidding, who buys such padlocks???

  3. another  excellent video !!as you said,,and i disagree, lol nothing convaluted about your videos,  shown and explained 4 maximum comprehension. well done as always.

  4. German quality 🙂
    Greetings from Germany btw. I really like your vids. I know this one is old but I start watching all step-by-step.

    Thank you for your work!

  5. There we go mate. I think I have some nice anti shim feature ideas for that lock. But then again Abus won't listen to me. Sorry that I haven't done that other video yet bill. I will do it as soon as possible and as soon as this snow storm is over here.

  6. Very interesting video Bill!
    I really liked the cutaway and the detailed explanation! I knew about this bypass method, but I had not idea on how exactly it works. Sometimes I got it right sometimes not, but I was just poking around blindly. Not any longer, now I know what to feel for. Thanks 🙂

  7. Cool stuff man.

    What are those two black things in the middle?

    Could they have prevented the bypass by replacing that springy thing with a solid bit? It seems like they left way too much play in there.
