Zeb Camper Posted October 11, 2017 Share Posted October 11, 2017 You know, I think it would work. I personally would want to be able to over correct as much as possible. Better to have and not need than need and not have. But, if you have a small blade that has that much bend in it after heat treat, chances are you have alot more to worry about. At that point you must question your geometry. I would make it out of maybe half inch square bent to 90° around the jaw. Just use the vise as a natural form for the hot bar. You can then grind the edges round where it will contact the blade. Then grind your slot for it to interlock with the top of the jaw. Look for custom handrail makers in your area. They have half inch square scrap up to their eyeballs (I work at such a place, so I know). I guess you could also over pay for something at a hardware store if you had to though.
