Kinda a combo birthday/graduation gift to myself.
The Cottarelli T-Rex. I got a screaming deal on it, so pulled the trigger. Think i'm gonna sell the Anvil Atlas now.
Comes with two jaws, both of which are removable.
This is a 1/0 salmon hook. with the two secure points, you wouldnt believe how little pressure
i had to put on the jaws to get the hook secure, and "bend" without slipping. Great for those fine japanned hooks i'm working with.
This is a size 7 wet fly hook
There is a full range of motion of the head, rotary and it can be pitched to near vertical to allow easy access to the fly/hook, in the second photo i've pitched it up a bit.
There is another head set, with smaller jaws (i didnt buy it) for smaller hook, but i think what i have will work just fine for me.
A few other accessories include waste catcher, tool rack, sight board and bobbin cradle, all of which mount to the vise. I didnt get any of those either, but might pick up one or two at a later date. The joints are incredibly tight and the craftsman ship is second to none. All these vises are made by hand in Italy.
