Machinist Vise from "Technical Drawing with Engineering Graphics"

I think this is my fourth installment of an exercise on my own. I followed a drawing from "Technical Drawing with Engineering Graphics" on page 687 in this case. I realize while I am writing this that I did not add the Jaw Plates, but I think enough is given here for critical evaluation. 
For the square screw (acme), I used the Revolve tool and set a pitch of .125.  I used a typical pattern for one tooth and revolved that into 36 turns if I remember.  I had to 3D slice off one half at the end. I don't have as much confidence in the internal threads, but used the subtraction (keeping the subtrahend).
So, here is the vise.

Nicely done.

It appears to not be in Perspective mode, but the angle of view makes that difficult to ascertain.

My only real nitpick is the cast shadows.  This appears to be a Lightworks rendering.  Did you increase the lighting quality or just leave it at the default?

Hi Jeff and thanks. I went ahead and added the jaws. Then I changed it to the default SE perspective.  I can't say that I am 100% satisfied as I am still learning screws and materials.
