Just curious if anyone has seen or used one of Tiemco's vises?
They seem to have some interesting concepts.

At today's exchange rate of 0.0112044=1, the TMC Step Vice (top picture in FishAholic85's post) is $206.16 and the TMC Vise II (second and third photos) is $588.23. Unless they are distributed here in the US, you would also have to take into account shipping from Japan.

Yeah I looked in to getting one. First emailed TMC and after two weeks they told me to email Umpqua. Emailed Umpqua and never got an answer back. Heard a rumor they were going to discontinue these vises, but their again, just a rumor i heard. Hopefully you will have better luck in getting an answer back from someone.....

I filled up two shopping carts late last night
The one was full of fishing gear, the other newcastle ale
The checkout-lady laughed and said 'You think you got enough'
And I said 'Yeah, You're probably right', and filled another two carts up
Gonna catch all the fish, Gonna drink all the beer, Gonna head outta town, We're not staying here
Might take all day, might take all year, Till we catch all the fish, Till we drink all the beer

I'll see if I can dig something up on these vises, and find out a bit more.

Day5 "...the first vise looks flimsy."
Maybe.... But it also looks very comfortable to work with, and has plenty of clearance behind the jaws.
