    Another nice, useful project! I know it's just my habit but I wouldn't be able to start milling before giving those clamped pieces at least one firm whack with a mallet. That's a useful tip for keeping the parallels upright too.

    I've got some serious envy going on of you guys with the large collections of raw materials to work with.
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.

    The way to get a "large collection of raw materials" is to make enough mistakes on your other projects!

    My friend Rogerio de Silva from Brazil and I were having a talk some time ago about engineering in Brazil. I don't think many have any idea how expensive it is to buy equipment out there let alone materials. Rogerio asked me how much I paid for my Lathe, I told him 1200. He said it would be cheaper in Brazil to buy a car than my lathe - I just about fell over.
    So my friend celsoari hat off to you for a fantastic piece of machining, I also learnt a couple of skills watching your video clip.
    I saw a similar project to yours and made a pair of adjustable vice jaws as well. my jaws are not shiny like yours and have not been faced to square them up - just used some machined square stock i purchased. i am so embarrassed i am now going back to finish them.

    True friend, the machines and devices are very expensive here in my country. Raw materials are cheap. That's why we manufacture our own tools. In addition to expensive, it is difficult to find to buy. For example, there is no lathe dog in my country stores.

    We figure we'll be building a lot of the new things we need at the new house. But one of the things I checked before we decided on our move to Russia is does AliExpress ship there. They do and we have a major train depot in town for heavy item deliveries.

    So, I will be selling my big milling machine here and buying a new one from AliExpress there. So much easier than trying to get a 300kg mill shipped over there.
