    Notice; this engraving vise has seen some things and users. Anyone catch that heads of the jaw stakes are doodled on too?

    Yep, I like the Eye! This is a fun adventure watching where he is taking it and like the result better also!

    Anyone have any interest in providing a tutorial about making these coins. Especially fixturing and generally handling thin coins.
    5C collets (step collets) would be my first guess but would be nice to see the work behind the coins!

    Thanks for sharing

    I can not agree more. I would think it is all done in and engraver's vise or ball.
    Wonderful.
