in the top to make a built in parallel. but I need it in hardened
steel when I make them out of 1018 the slot will get chewed up. but my
mill/drill can't handle the hardened jaws.
my last attempt it seems the soft metal or maybe that they were not
ground really flat never hold work as well as the hardened jaws did.
all I need is a slot that is say .125 deep give or take .002 or so
(it does not need to be exactly that deep but I need it a bit under
1/8" and .25 wide. a set of the that match. since about 90% of my
work is right at the top of the jaws having to always use parallels
gets old. it's even worse when you can't find a matching set (G)
