    Hans, Thanks for the correction. I was under the impression that once he retired, that was it for sales and service. Glad to see he will continue to service his products. Just out of curiosity, have you ever had work done to yours?

    REE,

    Since that first version from 1989 there have been some changes to the trimmings of the vise (arm assembly went from tommybar to friction, the brass knobs have received a more refined knurling, and the pedestal base has moved from steel to a bigger footprint aluminium, things like that) and those 'updates' have been applied, but the core of the design, the jaws assembly, is as it came to me almost 25 years back.

    Cheers,
    Hans W

    Sounds like a neat tool for the tyer that so desires.

    A beautiful piece of engineering but I think I'd rather spend that kind of money (if I had it) on a round trip ticket to Schiphol and go fish with Hans.

    Regards,
    Scott
