    Hello, this is my first post here. I have been looking for a vise suitable for tying saltwater jigs in the 1/2 oz and larger size. Most of the jigs I use are in the 1/2 oz range though. This would be my first vise, but I dont want to get something too cheap and then end up buying another one down the road.

    I have a few knives I could offer as a trade to lower the price, or even some custom titanium fire pistons and titanium capsules i make myself. Not looking to sell these, just trade for a vise or to reduce the price of the vise. Look through the whole thread, I have added several pictures of some other stuff offered for trade in more recent posts. Thanks in advance.

    a titanium capsule is a capsule made of titanium. Some people like to use them to store stuff they dont want to get wet, much like a waterproof match tube. These are virtually crush proof.

    A fire piston is used to make fire. Here is some more info from wiki:

    I never knew what a fire piston was until a few years ago when I stumbled upon an article. It intrigued me enough to start making them. Very cool to start a fire with just heated air.

    What would your dollar value be on one of the fire pistons if you were to trade it towards a vise. Beautifully made by the way.

    Regards

    thanks for the kind words Paul. The value of the titanium fire pistons is 125 and the waterproof capsules are 160.

    Check out this clip. Pretty much explains how the piston works.

    Kinda like a diesel engine. It's the compression that causes ignition rather than a spark from a spark plug.
