    Sounds like a very cool project. Keep us updated how it goes. Love to see some pics documenting the build. Good luck.

Not very good at fishing for them, yet, so the idea of tying my own jigs came to mind to have something different the Crappie might hit.
    I bought a Super II vice....it'll work for a while.
    Ive got in mind to get or make a true rotary one. My past experience isn't in using fancy lathes and such tools... I'm more a lawnmower mechanic.... so I've been looking over the production rotary vices. Some are real eye candy and expensive. Some are under a $100, and some around $50.... I could do them as far as cost.
    I'm a beginner....at tying. That's not necessarily at building something like a rotary from scratch. Just for grins and giggles, and after researching what production rotaries look like, and their features, I've concluded what I like or dislike about them. That's from watching videos demonstrating the features. I'm not trying to be better than them. I just want to see if I could put one together using basic parts from my background of being a lawnmower mechanic. You'd be surprised what can be found in a hardware store. I've started on my drawn plan. I have the rotary part about half finished. The angle of the main rotary shaft on the bearings mounted in the head. The vice part, is bigger than most I've observed. That's because the one thing about the cheap Super II that I bought is its length of the vice. I have pretty good size hands. I'm building this one so I have room to have my hands doing the tiny work, with the vice and head to rest my wrist on. Maybe it won't be a total waste of time and money. I'm not trying to re-invent the rotary vice. This is more an effort to see whether I can make a useful vice for my pleasure of saying I built it myself.
    I wish you started this on your on post and topic since it's so different (and Interesting) than just buying a vise, but it is what it is. This thread is almost a year old and should just let it rest where it is.

    I do have a suggestion for you since you said your hands are large maybe look at the Renzetti brand vise for something t go by. The allow more room to your ty than say a Peak does.

    Interested in seeing the diy vise project come along. I too have the desire to build my own but have high demands of what it’s supposed to turn out like, quality wise. I don’t have the tools to build along the quality I demand. I admire those that have the skills and patience to make a product of above average quality. Keep us posted.
    Listen to your gut over all the other voices.

    Hi, Skip
    I guess, I'm rusty at using the forum, and using proper etiquette of jumping into someone's thread.... I can start a new thread. That would be nice to do if it would generate interest. I was just trying to place my comment into a vice area. I didn't see a good category in Fly tying area.

    This tying board pretty much covers everything someone wants to ask about. Just put what you want in the subject and someone will help.

    If I were you think I would make a post with Making My Own Vise as the topic and then all the verbiage you used in the post here. Then guys can follow along and join in when they can. I just find it interesting that you want to make your own vise and I do understand a good machinist surely could make a good vise, I just don't know anything about that, but would sure be interested.

    That is the same vise I started with my first year, but that was a long time ago and I believe the Danvise has had some upgrades since I had mine some 14 - 15 years ago. My next was the Renzetti Salt Water Traveler and it's a fine vise, but then I jumped on the Nor-Vise for several reasons, but most had to do with being able to spin it and not just rotate it. I believe the Danvise back then was like $79.00.
