Bench dogs for 3/4” (19mm) round holes with teeth that grip the wood and pull it down onto the bench, these dogs bite!
Preparing a rough board by hand with a jack plane, scrub plane or toothed iron can be quite a forceful process. These new toothed bench dogs provide masses of grip to keep the wood firmly planted on the bench while you work. Heavier planing is typically done before the timber is cut to final length, so the marks from the teeth get sawn off when the board is trimmed up. To hold components after they have been cut to length, simply rotate the dog and use one of the two smooth faces.
With its brass collar removed the bench dog will lay just 1/8” 3mm above the bench top, allowing material as thin as 1/4” to be worked with ease. With its brass collar on, the dog will sit up 3/8” 9mm from the surface – the ideal height for holding thicker boards.
So there you have it, a bench dog that will bite and hold (but only when you want it to), lie down, sit up, wear a collar and work with a standard 3/4” round dog hole array.
Man’s best friend? You’ll honestly wonder how you managed without them.
