Default Renzetti Jaw Question

Do those of you that have a Renzetti vise oil the cam or spring area of the jaws?
If so what oil or lube do you use?

I have a traveler from 1988 and have never oiled or greased any part on the vise.

if the o-ring EVER BREAKS, get a new one from the big box hardware store

Hiya Jimmie,

No lube necessary just keep a good O ring on the back of the jaws and don't go putting a size 4 hook right at the very point of the jaws and then cranking them as tight as they'll go................. The only complaint I've ever heard about the Traveler is people breaking the jaw tips. Mine is the original screw tension jaw and I've tied a lot of flies ranging from #22 up to 3/0 salmon irons without a hitch.

Thank You guys. No oil it is.
Got a kit (spring, bearing, o ring) coming from Renzetti since you guys said no oil. Something goofy going on with cam. It started rebounding back from tight setting then hook would spin down.

Default Re: Renzetti Jaw Question

The cam lever rides on a rolling element bearing on either side. Since you're disassembling the jaws, I'd take the opportunity to wipe everything down and add a dab of light grease to each bearing prior to reassembly. It's steel riding on steel under pressure; in the interest of smooth operation and minimized chance of galling, I'd opt for lubrication.

Edit: Found a video where Renzetti recommends this as regular maintenance.

After hearing and seeing this I'm glad I have the original design before they improved it
