I am interested in buying or trading for an old model Renzetti vise with a screw mechanism closure at the bottom of the vise. I believe they are the older version of the Presentation 3000, but may have had other names, and have also heard it called a "3-jaw" vise. I do not believe these have been made in some years. If you have one let me know!!!

I have a Renzetti Traveler vise. The first version of this vise had a set of jaws that used 2 screws to tighten the jaws on the hook. Now the vise has one screw to adjust the jaws down to the size of the hook, and a cam to tighten the jaws on the hook. It has been a good vise for more than 20 years. Its light weight, and makes an excellent vise for traveling. I would consider selling it.

Cole,

I sent you a PM regarding the vise you pictured but I'm not sure it went through as I don't see it in by "sent box". At any rate, I re-read your post above and on second reading it appears that is not the vise you were selling. If you are interested in selling it let me know.

Hey there ocean, don't know if you noticed, but this thread is four years old and the poster in question has not logged on in two years.

I just joined this forum and this thread caught my eye. I have that vise, don't know what the vise is called, but my wife bought it for me in 1983 (I think or could have been 82 or 84). I think it was the only vise that renzetti sold at the time and it was a pretty penny. Not many rotaries at that time. It was the Rolls Royce of tying vises. I thought it had a serial number on it, but could not find one. Mine has the pedestal base.
