Default down about vice

Well it looks like I need a new vise. The one I have just isn't holding up very well. The screws and such are starting to weaken and comes loooose often. And well the vice isn't wide enough for some of the bigger hooks I got. I've had it a few years now and have not made a large number of flies with it maybe 100 or so. I think that I will keep it around for the smaller hooks and smaller flies. But I need something that can take a much larger hook (3/0 and bigger) and wont set me back a lot of $$$. Any ideas?

Take a look at a Regal Inex if you don't need a rotary.
