Cutting Steps in the Taig Vise Jaws

I needed to face both sides of these extrusion slices.
Using one of the slices to load the jaws I found the edges and cut a .075" wide by .05 deep step.
The jaws are mild steel and cut easily.
The other side.
After running the cutter into the screw on the moveable jaw I decided to recess it further...
Taken apart.
I ground a flat bottom drill.
Drilled with a regular drill to depth.
Then used the flat bottom drill to counterbore.
Now it's easy to face the slices. You could even make soft jaws for the Taig vise easily.
What are the slices for? Well earrings of course.
