    There's a name I haven't seen in a while!!! Hope you're well sir!

    Yes that's the same vice alright.

    I bought a set of replacement Jaws for it a few years ago and now keep my tube vice in the old Jaws and use the new ones for hooks.

    I didn't realise how much I used the rotation of the vice until I tried to tie a few tiny trout flies on my old stationary vice. I didn't even finish one fly on it!

    There's a Snowbee Waldron in the Classified Section of the Forum at the moment. These are a fantastic vice, designed by Lawrie Waldron before he started making and selling his own units. His stuff is outstanding. I have 2 of his dubbing rakes, his whip finish tool, his tube fly head and one of his own vices and all are absolutely first class pieces of fly tying finery.

    It's all very well using WW2 analogies when referring to Brexit - 'spirit of the blitz' and all that. Imagine the curious atmosphere though if you were sitting in your air raid shelter looking around and realising that half of the people around you had voted to get bombed

    Im keeping well thanks, haven't been on here for quite a while!

    Did you bother with the extension arm for it, or is it needed do you think?

    Will have a look, but might be out of my price range!

    I had to Google again to see what the extension arm was for. No I've never used one.

    Unless you were looking to tie extremely long winged flies I don't think it is necessary.

    Did you take it up with Scotties? No problems with mine and have always had good service from them.
