Is there a paragraph missing from this article?
There is no mention of what goes in the M6 tapped hole in the upper part nor the M3 tapped hole that intersects it. Likewise the 19.5 mm dimension of the lower part is referred to as for "final finishing" but never mentioned again.
I think I can guess what is going on but can't see where the movement needed for the clamp to work is coming from.

M6 hole is for the screw that holds both parts together (see matching counterbored hole in lower part) as mentioned on P16 and illustrated in photo 8.
By reducing the height to 19.5mm after machining the hole makes the hole more or less oval so the cam can force the two parts apart.
I guess the M3 hole is for a grub screw to lock the screw that holds the two parts together in place, once you have it in adjustment.
Afraid these sort of details are easy to overlook when editing, easily spotted if you actually build the thing.
I might mention this in Ed's Bench.
