Each dog is made up of a 1"-square block glued to a 3A"-dia. dowel. A threaded insert is installed in the block. The insert holds a long hex bolt that can be adjusted to hold my workpieces. A rubber cap protects the workpiece from being damaged by the hex bolt.
To use the dogs, you simply insert the dowel into a dog hole in your workbench. Next, tighten the bolts in each dog until you get equal clamping pressure on the workpiece. The pressure of tightening the
bolts on the workpiece will hold the dogs in place on the bench.
Making these saves time and money, and I can make as many as I need.
