    I centered my Moxon screws as you are planning to do. The only drawback is when clamping something that does not extend 4" down into the jaws.

    An 1-1/2" rabbet and an 1-1/8" round. To help keep it consistent over a long length, I'd make a test gauge that looked like a scratch stock.

    BCTW makes (or made) magnificent rulers: 6", 12", 24". They put a lot of thought into the length, thickness, and coloring of the tick marks.

    How good are you at keeping the shop at the left end of your bench clear?
    The left end of my bench is 2' from the wall, so a vise at the far left wouldn't be ideal.

    Boggs sharpening does a great job; I've run hundreds of files and rasps through them. Their process will not tighten the corners to any real degree.

    Those threads were 'run' by people who are offended by 'high' prices even though they are/were not forced to buy.
    With Jim Bode the price is well-known and does not mysteriously move.

    I have one and installed in on an Ikea-like bench top. The install was easy, the quick-release works well, and it's a fine performer.
    If you want a tail vise, this is a good way to go.

    The 4x4's are 3-1/2 which means the top probably finishes to 3", maybe 3-1/4".
    A ripped 2x12 gives you 5-1/2", which easily finishes to 4-1/2.
