Looks good, however Idk how well your hold down will work.  Try it out and let us know.

Cleanest rail I've ever seen. Even cleaner than any new rail I've seen. Did you do an electrolosys bath on it?

The first hold down I made looked alot like yours. Chain and an old blind weight. If you can get a hold of motorcycle chain it will hold your stock down even better.

I have an old bike chain and a spring to make a similar set up. I'm glad to see you improvising for tools. It should inspire others.
