    Has anyone modified the Moravian workbench to put a deadman beside the leg vise? I was starting to think about extending the mortices for the vise support into dadoes that extend along under the benchtop and on top of the front long stretcher. Grateful for thoughts on effectiveness, gotchas etc and any pictures.

      I don’t use sliding deadmen much on my other workbenches, and I’m glad I didn’t add it to the Moravian Workbenches. Plus, if you add some holdfast holes in the right front leg, you won’t have a need for a deadman. Plus, the Moravian Workbench is pretty short to need a sliding deadman. They are more for long workbenches.
