Re: vise

I have a renzetti traveler, its a awesome vise very solid. Jaws are great rotates, very adjustable plus it cost less then 200 which is really nice. Also Peak is a another great vise at a great price.

Re: vise

I've got a handful of vise's but my go-to is a Renzetti Master.

The pro is that it works pretty good. The con is that it costs about the same as a new pickup truck.

Re: vise

I hate to put the jinx on myself, but I've been using an Orvis vice that I bought in the 70's. Has a lot of mileage on it.

Re: vise

For the past 17 years I've been tying on a dyna-king barracuda. No complaints at all, nothing has broken or failed. Original jaws still going strong, and I've been known to tie let's say often. Recently I bought a renseti traveler with a base with demos in mind and I must say I am extreamly impressed with it. So, with my meager vise experience I would not hesitate to recommend either vise to tie on.

Re: vise

I have always used a clamp on vise. Do those who use a pedestal base find them sufficient?

Re: vise

The standard size base on the renseti traveler for most tying is fine. Although, I must be a little heavy handed in my tying because I do move it around a bit in the process of a tie. If you're a weaver you're going to need the optional larger base it just moves around too much doing that. But, keep in mind I've tied on nothing but a vise clamped to a table for a very long time so it's probably me that needs to make adjustments...

Re: vise

Another vote for the Renzetti Traveler. Mine has a pedestal, which I find not nearly heavy enough. Easily fixed with a C clamp.

The Second Ammendment...
Its kind of a big deal.

Re: vise

Anvil Apex and Anvil Atlas. Both very nice not expensive at all, they are made here and built like we're made for WW2. I don't use the pedestal much mostly the clamp.

Fishing, Turkey Hunting, Shed Hunting, Archery Hunting yep that's it!
