Shaving pony

A small shaving horse to attach on top of a small bench

They feature a foot actuated clamping system –early hands free quick release– and as the "horse" name implies, a way to work astride, aligned with the work piece.

A "shaving pony" would probably be a small shaving horse and mine is just a removable appliance for my sidekick bench.
