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. WOW, 26 .16 minutes, I had to go get a pizza, popcorn and a pizza . . …….great pickin’ Bill !!

  2. Been watching your videos for weeks – very informative and great narrative (love those Master Locks)…think I’v found my new hobby at 53 years old.

    1. Stewie,

      Chief Tribe Leader Bill is the BEST !! Great hobby, great pastime, great people, enjoy and welcome to “the tribe”.


      The “Master at Arms” 🙂

  3. I don’t think you’d have any problem with the ferrous pin. One idea is to shave down a key and use it for the tension wrench. You’d leave the magnet in the end of it. As a bonus, that would prevent the trap pins from falling into the bottom of the keyway.

  4. I wanted to buy this inexpensive UK lock until I found out you can buy a tool that opens this lock in 5 seconds

    1. There is lots of videos about lock snapping on the web to go check.
      Basically they rip of the weak external door handle and grab hold of the front of the lock to snap it in half at the weak point in the centre to gain access to the gear mechanism in the door itself thereby totally bypassing the lock.
      To my a portion of these locks snap off and foils any further attempt to bypass the lock.

  5. Bill you could rotate your plug follower clockwise or counterclockwise to the cutout opening to take out 1 pin or repin the lock 1 pin at a time.

  6. they can be picked whilst in the door.
    just gotta use some neodymium magnets on the pick to get past the magnetic element.

    i am an avocet lock centre.
    great locks till they jam up
