The bench works well for me, very solid. If I need to clamp work to the top I use short (24") bar clamps, I also have a couple of hold downs, just need to drill a dog hole or two to try them out.
The spring loaded planing stop was a disappointment, Perhaps my planing technique was faulty, but the end of the work piece would "walk" up and then slide over the stop, and eventually it broke.
