    They're good, but not so large as the traditional Emmerts. This makes fitting one easier, due to fewer collisions with support structures.

    Keep in mind that the PTRNMKR vise has a long secondary...

    I keep two of the clear containers popularized by Lee Valley with the hardware
    that is difficult to find (square cut nails, for example).

    I consider Amazon and the local ACE Hardware to be my...

    What's the application?

    I think you'll need a backing veneer, to ensure stability over the long haul.

    As mentioned above, veneer with a finish will form something
    of a moisture barrier. If...

    The OP is describing a bow in the assembly.

    I don't mill by machine, so I can't figure how the lateral alignment
    would effect the vertical and cause the deviation described.

    It would be...

    I would not use a breadboard.

    I would build with a space in the middle, to hold a batten.
    Bolt down the front of each "plank" but let the back float
    on the stretchers - either with a screw in an...

    I prefer laminated irons that can be honed by hand.

    I find that the Swedish Berg stuff is too hard to make
    that an easy proposition.

    I would keep an eye out for upcoming products from current...

    If the edges you've already exposed are nearly flat, just get on with it.

    It's a bench for working wood, not an Optical table for interferometry.
    No sense complicating this.

    You might want to move this to become a new thread.
    The OP is nearly four years old.

    The legs on my benches are 5-6" wide on the front plane.
    You'll not regret having wider legs.

    Benchtop vises - FWW article search

    I'm contemplating a modification for my bench.

    The built in Moxon has some limitations, specifically in holding things
    that are less than 1/2 the thickness of the front chop.

    It's a fine take on a timeless form.

    I particularly like the way it looks in a regular room.

    Too many look great in a show, but overpower a living space.

    The knobs are particularly sharp.

    Have you defragmented your drive, or set the hardware priorities to favor audio?

    I wouldn't use it on moving parts myself.
    For wainscoting, or other static panels - it's excellent.
