That's going to be one classy little vise!
When you said "Engraving the name" I wondered if you meant 'Baby Wilton' or the name of the builder :)
Now I know.  And it's going to look great!

All but one lathe part, the rest is milling....including the engraving/carving of the names

Looking good, Dave!
Will the engraving be done CNC?  Or some other method?

CNC. I want the name to look as if it was cast...so its in relief..lots of whittling.....will probably take it down in 3 steps with 3 tools ...so I dont wear out a tool before im done.
