Yes, that’s very much like my old bench, with the nut attached to the bench rather than to the block. The only downside is that the screw protrudes more from the bench as you loosen it. The upside is that the pressure is directly behind the dog hole, rather than offset.

Looking at Schwarz’s bench with the tracks on the bottom sent me back to Sketchup:

In this iteration the upper guide (3/4” angle) is screwed in a rabbet on the bench; the middle guide (also 3/4” angle) is screwed in a rabbet on the dog block; and the whole assembly is held up with 2” flat bar steel screwed to the bench.

This approach also allows for easier disassembly than my previous idea: just pull out the screw, take off the flat bars, and the dog block would just fall out.
