HMH Standard Rotary Vise available at Traditional AnglerHMH Standard Vise (Sold Out)

HMH believes that a vise should be high in performance, tenaciously durable, and simple in design.  They work hard to optimize these attributes in their vises, so that you become a better tier.  Only the best stainless and tool steels are used, to ensure that your vise is strong, smooth, beautiful, and will last a lifetime.

HMH Standard Vise is Available at Traditional Angler

The HMH Standard is the full-size professional quality vise that started the revolution in precision-machined rotary vises nearly 30 years ago. HMH has updated it with an improved chassis/bearing system for better collet support, better rotation, and infinite head angle adjustment. All parts are precision-machined and carefully finished using top-quality stainless and tool steels and brass.

It carries all the performance features of the Spartan vise, but has a longer collet, oversized control knobs, longer tying platform, increased stability, and even greater tying comfort.

Each HMH Standard vise is individually hand fitted and tuned for maximum performance. If you're ready for the comfort and stability that comes with a full-size vise, not to mention dependability, speed, versatility, and tying elegance, then you can't own a better tool for tying than the Standard
