Regal Vise Upgrade??

Anyone have a Regal vise that has upgraded to the stainless steel jaws?
i have had mine for close to twenty years now and the jaws are kind of dented over time
i did buy there shank jaw head to do intruder flies
so i was thinking of doing the upgrade to stainless steel and was wondering if it is worth it??

If your jaws are not holding because they are beat up then swap out to the stainless. If you have twenty years on your jaws then that proves there is nothing like a Regal. Id say go for it. Ill give up my regal when they pry it from my cold dead hands.

I don't know about stainless steel. It's hard, very hard! I don't know that this would be good for a vice. I would think it would be on the slippery side and have less grip over conventional jaws. 20 years on a set of jaws would make me go right back to the same thing instead of venturing into the unknown. Just my $.02.
