Regal Aluminum Base Travel Vise. We learned to tie on Regal vises. We love them for their ease of use and hook holding power. One of us has had a Regal for close to 30 years and its still in use. The Regal Aluminum Base Travel Vise makes taking a high quality vise with you convenient. The compact nature of this vise is great, but you don't give up anything in terms of quality and hook holding power. Regal uses the same jaw mechanism in the Aluminum Travel Base Vise as is used with all of their vises.
