Hi. I am hoping to find some help and guidance on mounting a twin screw tail vise. I have had my Grandfathers bench for years but I want to change the end vise. My question is do I need to add an end piece that hangs lower than the bench itself. Also does the piece anchor to the bench with lag bolts or some other way. My bench is 3” thick and I am putting a couple of pics to show it. I hope I posted this in the right forum and gave enough specifics. Thanks, Flyboy

I’d add another piece underneath. I did under my recent bench build so that the full chop makes contact. I made a couple detailed videos on my bench project post. I only secured the block underneath with 5/16” oak dowels and glue. It is solid and hasn’t flinched.

Thanks Glenn and Don. I picked up an NOS bench dog twin screw but it was missing the mounting instructions. I will look at both things. Flyboy
