    I know this post is 2 years old. Where does time go.
    That must be a pretty good tool maker vise. Photos appear to be using it for perpendicular reference for grinding edges of work, as well the 90 square angle.
    So you never mention much about your heat treat process. This is pretty large pieces of O1. I assume you have an oven large enough. Any tricks to keep scale to a minimum? Do you preheat your quench oil?
    The dowel pin holes that are reamed before heat treat, did you have any issues with the material swelling, or was that just minimal enough for a tight press fit?
    Sorry for so many questions so late in the game.

    I figured you never got a notification from my last post, I hope this does that.
