The extra base plate is a nice touch, would make for easy clamping when needed. Steps in jaws are nice, something that I’ve never done, generally I have lots of access to parallels though.

Nice vise Ted.
What is the story behind it? did you build it?

Yup 3/4 and 1/2 inch plate, about half on the lathe and half on the mill.

That is going to be way better than a cast vise

That's really nice, some would pay a lot for a DP vise like that. I made an adapter plate with studs on the bottom that fit one of my press tables and studs on the top to fit a standard cast vise, it allows for a lot of movement/adjustment when using the vise as well as an easy way to secure it. The extra plate with no studs on the bottom is a good idea that I might copy but I'll have to use a store bought vise on it.

I only wish I had the skills and equipment to build a beautiful vise like yours.

Would you mind explaining to this rookie what parallels are?
edit: found an explanation on Google. Do you make them or buy them?

most buy them. sometimes I use HSS tool blanks but you don't want to drill into one not paying attention.
