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. that lock is OLD. As someone else has said, it says "patent pending" which means it was before the patent was awarded. the most valuable part of that package was the box and combo card, even with one of the flaps ripped off. It is like the old Lionel and American flyer trains. the boxes and paperwork that came with the trains are now worth MORE THAN THE TRAINS THEMSELVES! (My Grandpa collects both trains and locks.)

  2. That box has to be half a century old or more. I remember when I was a kid they looked more modern than that, and I'm in my mid-50's

  3. hehe! Now THAT was funny as hell. A Master lock combo… world's highest standard of security. hehe

    Actually that was the lock on his wife's chastity belt, it hasn't been opened in 35 years, she finally died.

  4. I have been a fan of yours for a long time now.. Thanks Bill from Australia!
    I just wonder, do you have any lock, that you haven't been able to unlock till now and kept is a personal challenge, while you try on it every now and then whenever you think of a new trick to give it a go on it?

  5. Could you explain how this shimming technique works? I just recently found your channel and have already watched lots of your videos, however I don't understand how you can open the lock by doing that. Thanks.

  6. Though I am curious, how do you pick one of those combination locks that has the 4 individual rotation discs (0 – 9 on each) if you don't have shims or it uses ball bearings or something? Brute force would take forever, 10,000 combinations. 

  7. Nice lock. Those early master combos were made of brass, so the patina gives it character. Also, only the left side(when looking at the dial face) of the shackle engages the locking lever. Nice vid.
