End stop drops when not in use
When using a hand plane, a solid edge on your workbench to butt stock against keeps things from sliding around. This sliding stop fits the bill: It mounts directly to a workbench and can be adjusted up or down and back and forth.
To make the end piece, cut a groove in a piece of 3⁄4 " plywood to accommodate a length of T-track. Install the track, and mount it to the end of your bench as shown. Cut a stop from 3⁄4 " plywood, and slot it to accept a T-bolt, positioning the slot to allow the stop to fall below the benchtop for times you want it out of the way.
