Re: Danvise Vise?
I had/have the Danvise. I upgraded to the Renzetti in under a year because the jaws on the Danvise got pretty mangled and would no longer accomodate smaller flies. For an inexpensive vise and one that won't be seeing many dozens of flies, I would recommend it. Otherwise, spend the money on a higher end vise. The Atlas vises are great and don't tip the monetary scales as much as the Renzettis or Regals. The extension arm is mainly for holding a bobbin when using the rotary function of the vise. Keeps the thread out of the way!
