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 really enjoy watching your videos. I really know nothing about picking locks or lock security, but it is something that i am interested in. I own a simple set of lock picks, that i have never been able to use successfully, and i own a set of bump keys, that i have never been able to use successfully either. thanks for putting these videos up, very informative.

  2. Wow! I would think the company would be held accountable. For our gov. contracts, we have to provide detailed drawings and specifications. If we swapped out parts that made an assembly inferior to what was supposed to be provided, we would be looking at a potential lawsuit.

  3. did you figure out when they stopped using the crap pins and went back to security pins? I have a bad feeling the 50 series I just bought which has a rivet in it is 5 pin and easy to pick. Americans are my favorite toy I pop them every day. I will send it to you with some re pinned locks soon. my security kit came my universal lab kit comes today says ups.

  4. thanks for the reference. Sorry you ran into the same issue as I had on my base. Just money grubbing companies taking advantage of an existing contract. Im sure government locksmiths tested the 5200 when they made the contract. $100 to $1 says itll faill all those tests now.

  5. Please help me , what are the best locks that I can purchase under $50 ???? I always thought Master Locks were good until watching your videos !! I want to replace all my locks but I'm not a millionaire and need something secure but cost effective , need your help please !!!
