Fly Tying Vise Question

Recommended Posts

Hi I've been fly tying for over a couple years now and just recently my vise's jaw broke and I can't seem to find a replacement for it. The vise is a Spearhead Vise I can't find it anywhere it's like a one of a kind vise. I was wondering if anyone knew a website or had any advice for me to find a new jaw for it. The pictures I attached are what the bottom of the jaws need to look like for my vise.

Chris,

 

Did you buy it domestically (I am assuming you are in the US) or order it online? While it doesn't look like an offshore knockoff I have never heard of Spearhead vices before and I have been around awhile. If you can't track down the manufacturer maybe you can have a local machine shop reshape the jaws as a temporary measure until you can get a new vice. You might find a used one on Ebay if you are really desperate, I am not an Ebay fan. Maybe one of the other members here will recognize the vice and give you a better option.

thank you everyone for the help this vise was handed down from my grandfather so it means a lot to me

Even more reason on getting it fixed! Good luck and I hope you can get it repaired. Something like that is priceless. I sometimes watch crap on TV and you see people bring stuff in to sell. Usually they say it was my grandfather's or grandmother's and I have no need for it. I just do not understand why someone would sell something that was given to them or passed down to them. I have a few antiques that were given to me and I am sure they are worth a little pocket change but I would not part with any of them for no amount of money. It was given to me by family and I just could not get rid of the stuff. I guess I am to sentimental...
