    Default Red, Red Vice!

    Hey guys,
    Following up on my recent thread Red, Red Bobbin's I thought id post some pics of why i was looking for anodised red tools to match my new vice!

    After tying on the same vice and tools since i was 14 (17 years) i though it was time to treat myself to a new setup. Ive tied on some nice (mates) vices and knew what i was missing but could never justify the price.

    I found Jvice after searching around the net for something a bit different and a bit special.....well i found it!
    Jay makes these in his workshop in South Africa and im well chuffed!

    Solid feel, solid hook hold and pretty looks but no matching tools

    Locked down in travel mode


    Waste basket




    Gallows


    Streamer clip for holding long tails will epoxying


    Small hooks


    BIG hooks


    Articulated bobbin rest


    and a cute baby hair stacker!



    For tools i went for a set of Rite Bobbin's, Dr Slick sissors, MP dubbing needle and a few other bits

    Sorry for all the pics im like a proud new father

    Sit still and watch the river, it's all a part of fishing, oh and never trust a man in sandals.

    A VERY modest $400ish US including the accessories which i think is great considering what you get for your money!

    Not bad really for such nice engineering.

    Hi Trev,
    That's a lovely Tart Red Vice you got yer self there... ya may have to redecorate the room a bit and get a pair of Hot Red Pumps to match it all up.
    I think its absolutely smashing
    Glad your happy with it! That's all that counts. Cheers

    I want one. But preferably in plain steel so I don't have to match my tools

    Default Pimp my vice

    Just a quick follow up, the postman's just been!

    After checking out the new Jvice website last week i spotted these amazing limited edition Damasteel jaws that Jay had up for sale.
    A set of 6 jaws were made from Damasteel, a high quality Swedish Damascus steel (stainless) that is highly prized in the knife making world.
    Machined by Jay then sent to a custom knife maker to be hardened, etched and polished

    Waaaay over the top i know but very pretty!
