I made this from scraps. The center brace is adjustable from the top, since I did not have any T-tracks to adjust from the front. I glued strips from those circular rubber pads that are used to keep rugs from slipping. Couldn’t put on a handle due to the adjusters on the top. Most of the unit is 3/4” scrap pine, 1/2” plywood, and the left hand brace is adjustable and is made of 1/4” plywood. The small “Y” at the front is to keep the center brace parallel.

Looks good and a great thing to use to keep the hands save and away from the blade and also gives better control of the work piece .
I made one a while ago and I sure like using it .

Thanks for posting this Klaus

Well done, good idea to adjusting higher.
