If I had to do it all over again (which I may someday), I would move the rails to the front sides.
Because the counter weight lifts the platen from its rear, it has a tendency of not putting enough pressure at the far end of the book. To minimize this, I had to use less weight to counter the platen. If the rails were in front sides (side because we don't want rails to be in our way) we could completely counter the weight; and allow the far end of the platen to continue pressing against the pages of the book.
