    Make the drawer deep enough that they can be stored sitting on end. That way you can scan the cutting profiles without handling them.

    As a non-collector I'd keep the "Speed King". I can always find another Disston.

    This sounds like odd logic from a non-collector but the "Speed King" may be common and I just don't know it.

    I'm hoping when they reopen the order queue that their 18th century style chisels will be part of the product line.

    I'm too busy to learn enough machining to make my own... maybe.

    There's a guy with the US Forest Service that literally wrote the book on this. I think his name is Frank Miller. There's a paper book and a two hour on-line video.
    I'll try to verify his name.

    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.

    This +100. This approach also lets you have more than one vise: machinist, parrot, carving, etc., any of which can be dropped into place.

    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.
    In my shop they put Starrett and B&S to shame.

    How about drill some horizontal holes that are just pilot holes for screws. Then drive the screws just deep enough to occupy the slack space?
    .05" is about the thickness of five playing cards. With...

    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.

    My hand tool space is 9'L x 7'W. It is bound by walls on the left and behind the bench. My bench is 7-1/2' long, giving 1-1/2' free at the left end of the bench.

    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.
