    You guys should check out the Ekich automatic bobbin. It is a little expensive but it fits any spool and you can reset it before you clip your thread so it doesn't suck in. I was using it on my Nor-vise and now I use it on my Renzetti and it is the best bobbin I have ever used.

    I was wondering how you all keep the materials back when you tie in. The material holder is right up against the post and makes it tough to keep the material in one place.

    Some things like tinsel, wire and hackle can be put through the jaws in the vice.There is a gap in between the jaws.

    just got a nor-vice and am wondering where to get the small plastic tube that norm keeps on the bobbin to slide over material on the fly to hold it temporally out of the way while tying? im off to cut a mounting board and get started!

    it is the same cap that covers your bobbin. Just cut the tip off and there you have it. I was wondering the same thing when I got mine.
