Hello 1st Time poster
Newbie here I was wondering where would I go if I was selling a vise? I have a Renzetti master not registered or used... Any help would be appreciated and look forward to being on the forum .
tying station suggestions
Hey all. I'm new to fly tying (got a Renzetti Traveler vise last week for my birthday). I'm already obsessed with tying and starting designing a little fly tying station to keep all my tools organized
Old fly tying vise videos?
My first vise many decades ago was a Thompson.  Man, I tied a crap load of flies on that vise.  I am on a renzetti now and love it.  But, that Thompson name brought back so many memorie
Auction score?
Definite big score. A simple vise goes 35.00 and up. Even my 1.5 year old renzetti has more wear than yours. No rust a little tarnish on brass is it. Great find.
Greetings from the Southwest!
Welcome to the addiction. I use a renzetti and have had no problems with it in 1 1/2 years I have owned it. All those listed are good. Looking back I was concerned about its cost but now its like a pe

renzetti o-ring and what it does
I don't think Renzettis are repair prone. I have 2 Renzettis, a home vise and a travel vise for 35 years and both are going strong. No parts needed. The O-ring is designed to be replaced so that is no
Renzetti traveler review
How is Renzetti's warranty and customer service ?
Midge bobbins?
That bobbin do you guys like for small midges 26 an under? Anyone have experience with renzetti midge and ultra midge? And the rite shorty? I'm wondering how the tip diameters sizes compare?
Hair stackers, stainless
I got a Renzetti stainless. I think 2 1/4"long. Guess you can trim the pipe to as short as you want. Dryer sheets.

HAPPINESS IS ... TRV
I don't care what it does ... $500.00 is too much money for a vise.   Don't get me wrong ... I am glad you like it.  I wouldn't, because every time I looked at it, I'd be thinking about ho
Vice problems
Absolutely.  A common problem for all vises if you tie enough.  Took me quite a while to wear out a pair of jaws on a Renzetti Traveler for example, but I know commercial tiers who go throug

Hey there Dave; My vice is a Renzetti Presentation model. Older model bought back in the 80's. Has the thumb screw jaws. I added a backdrop + MacKenzie mag lite to it as well. IMO, best vice for my st
HEY KIMO! It's here, It's here!

Question for any familiar with Renzetti
This is supposedly a Renzetti Presentation 4000. I know that the original Renzetti came out in 88 (I think), so maybe this is a very old one. I have Googled for awhile and I'm not seeing any pictures

Stonfo Dubbing Brush Machine
I use one and yes, you can use it for making larger dubbing brushes.  It's not a bad setup and does the job.  What's nice is the tray drops out so you can spin the material freely.  It'
Fly Tying Kits - Recommendations?
Cody,   My advice is to focus on just the flies you intend to fish with and buy materials just for those to start out then expand from there.  A kit is not the way to go in my opinion. 
Renzetti Traveler Vice Jaws Composition
Cannot speak to the material nature of the jaws, but to the best of my knowledge all the Renzetti jaws are made of the same and there are no "stronger" versions, although the saltwater ones are beefie

What the heck are these?
I had a set when I first started tying, they came from Herter's.  Your fingers can do the same job.  They might still be useful for pushing back spun or stacked deer hair when you tie off
