I likewise would not trust thischuck much. On the otherhand an excellent proof of concept. You could take this design to shapeways oroneof theother job shops doing 3D metal printing. Even here I would strongly suggest studying the engineering data to figure out safe operating conditions.
This brings up the obvious question of cost effectiveness compared to buying new. Of course custom jaws are another possibility.
