(351) Yale Euro Picked Open (AND stuff from Ed Smiley!)

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. Booman631,
    You don't say what kind of locks you've worked on but if you REALLY want a challenge, get yourself some Mul-t-locks, Marks, Assa Combi or V-10, Medecos or BiLocks. There are several others as well that are not QUITE as hard as those – try Assa, Trioving, Ruko and Gege. Many of the Yales are quite a challenge if you need practice (as I do) with standard pins. For US brands that are even easier, try Schlage Everest, Baldwins, or the even much harder Schlage Primus.

  2. I'm assuming you mean a REAL one, not the hack jobs I do… PM Adrian Weber, he's a collector and knows all the guys that make cutaways. Occasionally someone sends one to me so I'll keep you in mind the next time that happens.

  3. Hey I'm new to your channel. I like your channel an love your videos. I have a question. I'm from Puerto Rico an is hard getting pick here. I have a home made set. I was wondering if you know anyone that sell pick to where I'm . Assassixn00@gmail.com thank you

  4. Good profile and mechanism, however these are running out of favour here in the uk, with the construction method, the area where the hole is drilled and tapped for fitment into the door is the weakest, these are snapped quite a lot with a cylinder snapper then the cam is turned. British Standards have now made some available that are a lot stronger and prevent this from being done

  5. Thanks Bill! If anyone else is interested in one, please drop me a PM.

    Kwan hit the nail on the head. I have more if you need to rip that one a part. Same with the winfield locks.

  6. The Smiley Family really hooked you up! That pick case is lovely. I'm really looking forward to seeing more about those locks.

  7. Kwan, I appreciate the information and tips about the lock. I had no idea what it was, not any ideas about how to attack it. Should be fun. Thanks for the offer to borrow your key but let me flail on it for a while before giving in to the key offer.

  8. Ed, Thanks again for the great case (and locks). It was a total surprise and please tell your wife she did a fantastic job on it. I'd be amazed if you didn't start receiving orders for these.
    Yes, I will take any hints you are willing to give on the cabinet lock. I've never seen anything like and, looking inside with a light, I can see nothing to manipulate.

  9. The "Cabinet lock" is a Sega 5380. They are all keyed in the same way. It's a magnetic lock with I think 3 pins. I'd love to see you open one of these since people remove the locks just because the keys are so hard to find. If you like to try a key I could send you one just as long as I get it back. 😉 I think I payed 45 AUS + shipping to Sweden for a key once..

  10. Bill…….I gotta be completely honest here. I WAS checking out that sweet pick mat through most of the video and thinking to myself….."he isn't gonna mention this thing at all!!!" Great picking as usual, but awesome pick gear man!!! Thanks!

  11. Woot! Glad you like it!. It also can roll up for easy portability.

    Would you like to know a little more about the cabinet lock or do you want to figure it out for yourself? 🙂
