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. I found mini ice cube trays at the supermarket for a dollar. They have three rows of seven slots. They work great. They are a little deep, but I use tweezers anyway so it doesn't bother me, plus you can move the tray or bump it and the pins stay put. The only other down side is it doesn't keep them the pointed the same direction, so you have to check orientation. But for a dollar I think it's a good option.

  2. I like that you wouldn't say the name of the hardware store you went to, for legal purposes, but the stickers on the flooring samples clearly had the home depot logo on them. LOL

  3. Why does the 6 or 7 pinning slots hafta be sooo long, large ? Can the pinning slots be cut only to about half the length and some of the upper space be routed out for other purposes, ie., items, tools, parts area etc ?


  4. very nice bill, love ur home made ideas, thanks for sharing, i am due a chritmas break soon so i will get chance to use the lock lab pinning tray you sent me, ive got a bunch of locks waiting to be gutted.

  5. Bill I love your craft segments!!! I have off for a while at Christmas and now I know what im gonna be doing ! Great idea. Hopefully I can put up a few videos as well…been too long.

  6. Nice thanks for sharing :0) very neat cut…! spray it with white can spray then the tray will looks more clear when all the pins are place ! cos the pin and the tray is like almost same colour ..

  7. Hi bosnianbill, I'm getting into to lock picking and Im looking to find a good lock picking set for a reasonable price. Do you know of anything I could get?

  8. Nice idea bill but better than anything you can buy? At the moment yes but next year we gone have a good product runnig that will be worth the money I am sure 😉
