It’s time for my new bench. I purchased a 10-inch Groz quick release for the face vise and I am pondering my options for the tail vise. This will be a split top bench with front and back section at 12 inches each with a six-inch tool tray in the middle. The bench will be 84 inches in length. The Groz will be at the front right (as I am mostly a southpaw). I will have two rows of left-to-right dog holes on 6-inch centers in each section.
If I had a spare $250, I’d go with the Lee Valley twin-screw tail vise. Sweet it is. But I don’t. So I’m considering building my own using one of the following:

Any thoughts, suggestions will be appreciated.
