  1. Nice ties all. Looks like it was a great swap!
  2. Make sure your jaws are fully threaded onto the drawbar. The further out the jaws sit on the drawbar, the further back your adjustment knob will need to travel rearwards on the collet threads to contact the cam lever. Disassembling the vise to visually verify that the jaws are able to fully thread onto the drawbar might be a good idea. For that matter, an occasional full cleaning, lubing and reassembly isn't a bad idea. I think that must be it. I can't image this happening in any other situation on my HMH standard. When changing jaws I always fully loosen the adjustment knob and screw that jaws in all the way, then back off just enough to level them out. That ought to do the trick.
  3. Started grabbing up the MFC tungsten wherever I can find the right sizes and colors in stock. Really top quality and about half the typical cost. You can probably get them cheaper but I already saddled myself with 100 cheapos that I can hardly bear to use. After that experience I'm not as enthusiastic about the lowest price options.
  4. Definitely! I can't wait to see what else is up his sleeve.
  5. I had a hard time getting anyone at home to appreciate it but I knew it would be well received here. Curtis, I hope you guys are planning some future installments!
  6. Just had to share this one! Curtis and the guys over at Flyfishfood put up the most hilarious fly tying video I've ever seen. I'll be LMAO for days over this one.
  7. Can't go wrong with the Peak at your price range.
  8. Smalliehunter has a Peak trailhead package posted on the trading floor for $150. Looks like there might be some interest already but you should definitely check it out if you're interested in the Peak.
  9. I don't know about the Griffin or Renzetti but it's hard to go wrong with the Peak for a versatile true rotary vise. It's rock solid and the more vises I become familiar with the more impressed I am with my Peak.
  10. ROFL... now that's a highly refined technique!
  11. Allen is one of the brands I stopped using. I had a lot more quality issues with them than Dai-riki so far. Verdict is still out I suppose...
