I’m thinking of adding a “sliding deadman” to my workbench. Rather than the usual configuration of drilling multiple holes in it to accommodate a peg or a holdfast, I thought I could cut a dado length wise and insert a piece of T-track about 20 inches long. Then I could attach a hold-down clamp (made for insertion in T-track) anywhere along the T-track to grip a board and hold it in place. Any comments ?
