Thompson Model B
Joe bought this vise back in 1968 when he first
started tying flies. In those days this tough and heavy tool sold for
the grand sum of $6.50, which is about $36 in current dollars.
Featuring a cast clamp/stem, there is nothing adjustable. It just
holds the hook. Long discontinued, any vise from a contemporary
manufacturer should be able to better this warhorse to be taken seriously.
If old reliable turns out to be a better tool than a new contender then you
shouldn't even consider spending your money!
