This stock support really knows how to swing

When clamping long pieces in my bench vise, no matter how much I tighten the jaws, the far end of the workpiece tends to drop when I work on it. This swing-out, adjustable-height workpiece support, connected by a length of continuous hinge, prevents that. 

To use it, simply swing the support out, slide the adjustable-height support to touch the workpiece, and lock it in place. When not in use, the support lies flat against the face of the workbench.
