    Ah, ok. When you said "toe clamps", I had in my head the standard clamping kit clamps that would have obstructed the top. You mean something...

    No, I appreciate that. The 'top' face and the back aren't parallel to each other (deliberately). The closest stack of angle blocks I can make is 1°,...
