Also known as a ‘Sliding Dead man’ the board jack is essentially a peg board with a series of holes bored in to it. Included with my ‘Workhorse’ workbench the board jack slides on a rail between the two front legs and the holes are dimensioned to allow both holdfasts and bench dogs to be used in it.

Generally the sliding board jack is used in conjunction with the face vice to support the end of long boards or hold the face of wide panels.
