To start with, one of my old tricks to help protect a customers' marker body against scratches or damage
from being clamped in the mill, is to put a couple layers of tape on the active faces. That's even more
important with this body, as I'd already stripped and polished it. In this case, I applied two layers
of clear packaging tape to both jaws and the base of the vise- over the years, I've also used aluminum
and even Delrin or UHMWPE inserts, but the tape is usually faster than swapping jaws.
