T-slot Bench Slave – Easy to Make and Easy to Use

24”-long T-slot track, T-nut, knob, 3 1”-dia. magnets, and a 2×4

I can position the bench stave anywhere along the metal surface. You can easily adapt this bench stave for your workbench using clamps, etc.

I don’t understand Chuck. What does it do? Is it like a ‘deadman’?

Oops! Sorry for the typo. This is a bench slave for holding the end of a long piece while the other end is clamped in the vise. The support can be adjusted up or down to suit the size of the piece. A traditional bench stave is shown in the picture and can also be seen here in use
