Andresere, you can also send the vise to get fully restored by Renzetti. If you go to their Facebook page they post pictures all the time of restores they have done. You can also buy the cam jaws and they will fit right on the vise you just bought. Happy new year!

Thank you, same to you and yours. I'm thinking these jaws may also be the saltwater jaws since the seller is from Florida. If that's the case I will restore them and sell them as I don't see myself doing any saltwater stuff. Steelhead maybe, but from what I know those hooks are a lot smaller than saltwater.

Bob Brown published in Fly Fisherman Magazine a way to convert the the thumb screw version of the old Renzetti's into sort of a cam variation as you can see in the the photo below. His method from the article is in this post:

Now that is interesting. Thank you very much for the info. I'm currently waiting not so patiently for the BBT (big brown truck). Thank you to everybody for all the info.
