I have those plans. After a fairly thorough study I believe they will work just fine.
I have not yet built the bench. (SHE says I have to put a deck on the new house FIRST)!

When I do build it, it will be bigger than the plans are drawn for.

But if you have several presses you might want to consider a slide in press mount system. One of the magazines had a very nice system depicted a while back. A beveled metal (aluminum) plate was used for each press and the "slide in mount" for it was built into the bench top.

Such system would allow you to loosen the clamping bolts, slide out the press or other tool, and replace it with another tool in a matter of moments. Might be a solution to the problem I was going to address by upsizing the bench.
