Snapped Vice

I’m really not sure what kind of Vice this is. I think a renzetti. Anyway I snapped the screw that can be adjusted when I was tying a buck tail on a large hook. Does anyone know if I can find replacement parts or if this is even a renzetti?  If not any recommendations for a large hook Vice to buy as a replacement? I tend to just tie for salt except for wooly buggers ect.

That's a Renzetti Traveler. Parts for this shouldn't be a problem. I have the same one just a bit less corroded. Thank you for posting this I went to pick up my salt water traveler and the O ring just fell right off. Oh the horror ( not really ) I'll just got to the hardware store and grab some replacements for both vices. PC070795.JPG.de78ce629ce8b3ee2e5a223fa05f2fa5.JPG

I stumbled onto a new Renzetti factory tour the other day on YouTube.  I’m a longtime fan.  Andy, supported by his wife Lilly, began the wave of true rotary vises back in the 70s out of his garage.  Still family owned, this is quite the high tech, incredibly high QC operation today.  Gave me a renewed appreciation for why their stuff demands the dollars.  Check it out if you have 20 minutes to kill.   I got the same replacement thumb screw a dozen years ago.

I'll tell you what that type of vice was thee choice of vices. The Thompson AA was the vice of choice. It's still a round for good reason. Probably more flies were tied on them  than any one vice in history. Now it's all about rotating vices. I'm a fine one to talk when have like 6 rotating vices.

My first vise was a Thompson AA and I tied on it for 7-8 years then upgraded to a Price vise (they don't seem to be around anymore) and finally got the Regal Medallion. Full rotating vise? Never felt the need for one as time has never been a factor for me when  tying flies. If I were a commercial tier, maybe I'd feel differently.

I have terra vice but the rotary version about 45$ I think it's a little better than the one you got but for what you need it should be ok

you can get rid of most of that corrosion with hoppe's no. gun bore cleaning solvent and toothbrush. i had the same problems, both the corrosion and the snapped screw, with my traveler and got it in much better shape. cleaning the corrosion should stave off any problems from letting it spread.
