    because at $75, it is quite a bit costly compared to alternate attachments like the HMH which is at $40 and the Guideline which is was just under $20 i believe.
    But you're right, the Nor-Vise conversion might be the best solution.

    Jesse, My birthday is April 2nd, buy one for me and I will give you a garage door opener, and show you where the bourbon is kept. Stay out of the Absinthe :)

    HAHA, mike the dubbing table still costs less than that bottle of glenmorangie i gave you for your B-Day last year. I think youre gonna be dissapointed when the bourbon is gone and you have miles of dubbing brushes in your garage.

    For every three dubbing brushes you tie I get to choose one to keep. The vise is in my fly tying room, the garage door opener gives you access to the house via the laundry room. Don't forget to close the garage door on the way in.

    johnnyd - i just purchased the HMH tube attachment and it works great! Thanks for the suggestion. I have it on the standard inline jaws and you're right, the pin doesn't go all the way in but it goes in just enough to tie up some of the big steelhead flies I've been tieing up. thanks again.
