  1. Thanks so much everyone, I have a couple more questions I hope you can answer for me - This traveller I have is a few years old, it is solid metal except for about 3 - 4 screws which look like nylon or plastic. It is good to know that they are really hardy vises. Can the Traveller take commercial fly tying? I now also have a older Danvise as well and wonder which one of them will stand up to the "crunch" better. Someone said that they changed the standard jaws with a cam set - what are these and are they expensive and where would I get them from? I also tie Saltwater flies as well for a local shop, will the Traveller handle these? Or do you think I should use the Danvise for that? You guys, thanks again for answering and have a really wicked Christmas won't you. Jeanne
  2. I have just recently (yesterday - Saturday 19th dec) won a bidding war on TradeMe for a traveller Renzetti ,and I picked it up and have used it with loving care. does anyone know much about these vises? I need to know how to take care of it, to keep it working properly and smoothly for a long long time as it wasn't cheap. Does it need oiling? etc any help would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance Jeanne
  3. I like it, I like it - great bait for a randy fush :hyst: :hyst: :hyst: But on a serious note here - it is really well crafted wouldn't mind it myself for the craftmanship thats gone into it. Jeanne

  11. Hi Leif - indeed welcome back....... now if I didn't know that these were flies I would head for the hill's already - big spiders tend to freak me out. i used to write nature and gardening articles and although I now find them fascinating creatures after all the research, I tend to give the biggies a wide berth! and these chaps look SOOOOOOOOOOOOO real *gulp* Well done. Did they take you long to create? did you do them from a picture or from the *shudder* real mcoy? Jeanne
