This is hanging on the side workbench. It is under the top of the table hanging about 12 inches in. It slide to the left or right on a 3 foot hanger and can slide off the “hanger”. I think the “hanger”.
has more to do with what it does than just for storage.

the pix shows that the block can be moved up or down. I have found nothing else to help it make work. The top left hand corner shows a bench dog stick through the bench.

It’s called a deadman. It’s used to support your board while using the leg vise.

yup you guys were right, It’s a deadman. That square block in the middle goes on the other side and there are two end vises that line up.

thanks
