(440) Slaymaker Padlock Treated Poorly


LockLab is Fan funded!  Help pay for stuff to review, break and talk trash about, and maybe even give away when we’re done.  Join the Tribe!

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. Hey Bosnian Bill

    Can I order that awesome pick case you have in the background with my own name on it, and if so, where?

    Also, what do you do for a living if you don´t mind me asking?

    Have a nice day!!

  2. Did you get some early Christmas presents? A new vise and a new (I believe) Colombia river knife and tool blade! Sweet knife! I'm a knife junky as well if you haven't figured that out. Great video, I didn't know old motor oil was so useful!

  3. Reminds me again…. I still have to send Adrian some vintage Squire locks I got for him LOL!!!! are you trying to piss him off by saying polishing that lock for him Bill mate LOL!!! I could always polish these Squires ;o))))

    Only kidding Aidy my friend…. Not sure if Bill was though LOL!!!!

  4. Nice vise.. And boobies!

    You need Methylethyl Ketone and perhaps gasoline to clean that out. If that fails, zinc LOVES strong acids and cleans up beautifully with them.

    If you are ever looking to make the vise a little more stable, the Model 312 weighted base is a great choice and has six little trays in it to collect shit.

  5. The core should be zinc die cast and I believe it was made around the WWII, the patent dates back to 1930 which makes it one of the earliest laminated padlocks on the market! It is even THE OLDEST laminated pin tumbler padlock that I know of. Master had earlier patents but not for pin tumblers. The oldest pin tumbler patent that Master has for a laminated padlock is from 1932.
