    That's why I actually have a house dedicated to my flytying. Still in development process, but it's coming along nicely. :)

    If it wasn't for the 100.00 shipping, that is a heck of a good price for a vise like that one! I thought they'd be much more than they are.

    I wonder if it is the $$ exchange rate that makes the price so reasonable?

    GAT, I sure hope your talking about the price and shipping from South Africa. From what I could gather from the spread sheet you buy the vise, the base, bobbin rest and jaws, all separately, then add in the shipping. From Wasatch it's a $500 bill plus $36 for express shipping.

    Root, let me know how you like the vise.

    Well now that that's settled you should be set for the foreseeable future. It looks like there might be a few different places to rest the heal of your material holding hand which is always a good thing.

    Take a look at these, saw on another forum that someone had used this for their Jvice.

    Doesn't have the function of the standard bases, but they sure look nice.

    A cheap Renzetti traveler will have to work for me. It has dried head cement globs and deer hair stubs kinda messy-like on the base.

    The last thing I need is a rock slab for my vise base!!! My back is in bad enough shape for fishing.... I don't need to aggravate it further by moving my tying vise around.
