(219) Complex Pinning and “Secret Sauce”

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. Hehe, sometimes that type of "secret sauce" can kill you. My bicycle stalled in a busy intersection, got me close to Mr. Death. The one-way mechanism in my rear wheel suddenly went "free way" (i.e. free-wheelin'). When I got home I picked rear hub apart and found alot of aluminium shavings left over from manufacturing process, they interfered/jammed the actuating lips setting them wide open inside hub. What shocked me alot is that these where expensive US$600 Mavic wheels too. I'd only expect this from a Loo Hung brand. I have a new habit nowdays with new wheels, first order of business, open 'em up, clear out, re-grease, ride!

  2. That secret sauce is amazing. Just can't believe that all that came out of one lock. And that it was that poorly made that Chinese water torture made it work better haha

  3. The low quality of some locks can save the day occasionally. I've heard a story (90% probably that it's true) that a cracked Chinese lock got stuck 1/4way between closed and open and could not be opened in any way, and that's why the robbers gave up.

    Moral of the story: always get the cheapest lock to protect your home.
    Just kidding of course… Never trust cheap locks, they might stop working when you need them opened the most. Also they are unsecure. 🙁
