Lawrence Waldron is recognized world-wide as one of the premiere designers of fly tying vices. Legendary amongst international fly tiers, his vices have a classic simplicity of design, which sets them apart from their peers.
"The idea behind this product was to create a fully practical versatile vice, with a good working area, used in the normal position or through 180°, allowing good access to the hook at all times. Another consideration was the hook holding ability from the smallest hooks (size 30) to large hooks (10/0). Purpose-designed to suit both left and right handed tiers, through a simple conversion of the connecting arm. The vice has simple, clean design lines to provide a clear and uncluttered working area."
A conversation at the 2004 British Fly Fair sowed the seed of what was to become a "dream team" co-operation: Waldron design & Snowbee manufacture. The Snowbee Waldron Vise offers the advanced fly tier faultless engineering precision coupled with a silky smooth operation. Its appeal is its simplicity. Superbly CNC engineered to tolerances of less than 0.01mm using 303 grade Stainless Steel, aluminum and CR12 tool steel for the jaws, hardened to Rockwell C 58. The main head axle runs on two sealed stainless ball-race bearings. Tension for the 360 degree rotating head is by means of a tension screw at the rear, operating on two Delrin washers. The vise jaws are joined to the main head by means of a simple link-arm. Two Allen screws allow setting up of the jaws for total rotational symmetry about the center line, regardless of the hook gape. The precision jaws feature two precisely milled grooves to allow different sized hooks to be held securely - from as small as a #28, up to large single Salmon irons and the largest saltwater fly hooks available. All vises come with a purpose designed carrying bag, Allen key adjuster tools, full instructions and a 5 yr. Manufacturers Warranty.
