Full-size section of rails
in a router.
Trim your rails to the proper length and install them. Screw one rail to the bottom rail of your bench using four #8 x 2" screws. Don't use glue; you want to be able to remove the rail for later adjustments or repairs. Now put the top rail and deadman in place and line them up with the bottom rail. Using screws, secure the top rail to the underside of your bench's top, or to the top rail of your bench — if you have one. Wax the grooves in the rails. The deadman should slide back and forth with minimal effort.
Now make the ledge. You could simply use a dowel. I chose to make one a little fancier. Bore a 11/4" -deep hole in one end for the 5/8" dowel and glue it in place, again making sure that when the ledge is inserted into the top hole, it lines up with the rails on your face vise. You might need to sand your dowel to fit the holes in the deadman. I used a 1/4" beading bit in a router to shape three edges of each side of the ledge. Finish your deadman to match your bench. PW
