Inexpensive bench dogs

Review Summary

I was hesitant to purchase these bench because they were plastic, but to my surprise these are heavy duty and sturdy. I purchased them a couple of years ago (on sale of course) and they have held up very well with no signs of wear. Easy to use, simply place flush into a 3/4" hole. I choose to drill a few extra holes in my work bench to expand my capabilities.

Good bench dogs

Review Summary

To me these are a good value for inexpensive bench dogs. I'm currently using them on my custom made work bench and so far so good. I glued a piece of leather on the face to make them grip the wood a little better. I think this beats a metal dog any day because if I hit them them while planing my blade doesn't get nicked. Of course like all things at Rockler I got them on sale.
Since they aren't height adjustable though I'll have to get or make others for working on stock thinner thank 5/8 ".
