Well, I just saw this thread and I wish Ed had gotten back and let us know if Dyna King has resolved his issues.
I must say I agree with DMac on his views of the HMH Standard. I have tied with the Standard for many years and have never felt the need for anything else. Possibly the greatest feature of HMH vises is the ease and quickness of changing the jaws, I can go from tying size 24s on the Micro jaw to a 6/0 hook on the magnum jaw in seconds and everything else in between. Yes, it is expensive, but it's a one time purchase and you never need anything else. Customer service is second to none.
