Hi All,

Wondering if anyone can help me identify this vise and possibly tell me anything about it.

Thanks. smile.png

If that's your vise ... can you set it up and get some better pictures?

It doesn't have the hinged stem to the vise head, but it looks like a Terra.

My 1st rotary vise looked just like that one. It was a made in India knock off. I bought it at Jann's NetCraft in Maumee, Ohio about 20 years ago.

 

 

Agree. looks like a knockoff off a Renzetti traveller.

Yup, either an Indian or Pakistani knock-off that is variously marketed by/as Sunrise, Terra, Zephr. Turns up all over the place. Heck, even Orvis is selling a variant. Have played with a couple of derivations and none of them were worth the price.

OK, thanks for info. It was part of a package deal that I could pick up fairly cheap, but had no idea if the vise was junk or gold. :)

It looks to be in the range of $50.00 vises. Probably works very well for the average tier ... not good enough for commercial quantity tiers.

What Mike said, if you're not a commercial tier it will serve the purpose. I tied on the one I had for at least 10 years and it did every thing I expected it to do.

Looks like Flytire nailed it. Not of a quality a commercial tier would use but would provide good service for someone just starting.
