What is its height?

I have found a study where they tested different heights with different people and evaluated pain in back, neck, wrist, shoulder etc in multiple hours work. It seems the optimum height is about 150 mm below elbow height (with shoes on).

I am 1.75 m and happy with the 38” recommended by Paul Sellers.

Moxon vise is not needed if your workbench is at the above recommended height.

2” is thick enough for Grammercy holdfast.

How long and wide is it?
