Yes Ray, the Renzetti's are a proud American family originally from Pa. where he had a machine shop. Once the vises became popular, they moved their business from the Harrisburg, PA area to Florida about 25 years ago. Andy Renzetti is a personal friend of the Clouser family (Bob) and I believe Bob consulted with him on various aspects of the vise design....thus the Clouser Minnow arm attachment. I own two travelers and they have served me well for over twenty years.
