Great vise building video, in my former life in the Railroad industry I was fortunate enough to get to build a lot of cool machines, the vise build reminds me of the rail breakers I got to build, we recycled rail and you would get a premium for rail cut to 2’ or so lengths, we built several, each one bigger than the previous one, the last one I built was fabricated out of 5” thick plate, getting one to tolerate the shock wave resulting from the rail breaking was the biggest challenge.

Maybe we can take this thread in a different and more random direction.
A while ago there was a discussion about vices ...not the bad habit kind, but rather, the shop kind. One of my vices (...the former kind) is watching fabrication videos, and I recently stumbled across this guy's channel. This is a summary of a 4 part series. Check out this mother of all vices...

Those look great Dan, both the squash and the Dynaco's.
I was lucky lately to be able to rescue my dad's Scott Lab Series tuner, power amp, and Garrad turntable. All three components are still in very fine condition. Not sure if I will perform their revival or entrust these family treasures to a true audiophile pro service tech. My dad was the Scott and Garrad southeastern rep in the late 50's and early 60's. I plan to hook them up to a pair of JBL 4410's. The irony of all this is that after standing in front of a guitar amplifier for 50+ years, I can't hear squat.

Why are you selecting seeds? To replant next season?
To create a cultivar that is well adapted to our growing conditions and is of the type we want. Every population has a range of genetic variability. This is the way it has been done for thousands of years.
The seeds in the photo we roasted this evening. I didn't mention that butternut is what comes in a can of most pumpkin pie mix.
