Default Renzetti Traveller

I finally upgraded my vise last year and got a Renzetti Traveller with a pedestal base. I find it holds a good range of hooks very firmly and enjoy tying on it. There is one issue I am running into and wonder if anyone has run into it and found a solution. The screw that secures the vise to the pedestal loosens rather easily allowing the vise to spin a bit when I tie. I've considered a drop of superglue since I plan to keep it on the pedestal base but figure there has to be a better way to secure the screw.

thanks!

I have the C-clamp version of the traveler. If your tying station permits it, you could always get the C-clamp (about $45 I think) if you didn't want to glue it to the pedestal. But I would try to fix it first.

I don't own that vise but I'd be leary of using Super Glue to secure it. You might consider getting in touch with Renzetti and explain your problem. Perhaps they've run into this before and can offer you a solution. Kayo's suggestion is solid, loctite is what I'd try before I used Super Glue.

Loctite sounds like a good plan. Might email Renzetti as well. It's not so bad that it's a problem just more of an annoyance. Thanks!

I have both the C-Clamp and the pedestal base. I've never had a problem with the screw loosening. My first thought before adding any Loctite to the screw would be to contact Renzetti. My understanding is that they have a pretty good customer service dept. I know from following them on Facebook, they are a small "mom and pop" company. Its always been my experience that mom and pop shops offer great customer service. Give em a call.

I had problems with the screw backing out on a pair of tying scissors. A guy whose in the scissor business gave me a solution that is quite good as it isn't permanent and uses simple household materials to resolve the problem. It might be worth a try on your vise. In any case it can't hurt.
Here's the thread:
Good fly tying scissors?
