Ok so the crochet is for use when the leg vise is removed if I'm reading that right. You clamp a block/shelf to the leg and can quickly side in a board on edge, joint it, and flip it over to do the other side or another board easily and quickly.

I love workbench talk, there should be a dedicated thread just for this topic.

Al, I guess what I was thinking was that the crochet and a 2×4 clamped to the legs (as shows in Scott Landis book) is a faster hold for edge planning. I guess if you needed to do a lot of boards or something, you can hold a board on edge without any screwing or unscrewing of the vise. Just throw it in the crochet. I'm sure you could make do without one with no problem.

Jusfine, I didn't know the woodwhisperer was making a roubo. Doesn't seem like his kind of thing.
