    Excellent work! I was wondering how you were going to keep the barrel from pulling out when exctracting the plunge tool but I see that you have contoured the jaws for both in and out strokes. Very neat solution. What materials did you use for the tool? is it hardened or would that cause breakage issues and its just a wear/replacement item?
