Review

This bit-and-bushing set eliminates the biggest problems with drilling bench-dog holes in a workbench top: imperfectly sized or misaligned holes. Here’s how it works.
You make a simple jig like the one shown at left, and using a drill press, bore a 1" hole the same distance from the fence that you want your dog holes from the edge of the bench. Next, tap the bushing into the hole. Then lay out the locations for the holes, and drill as shown. This setup produces precisely perpendicular holes without tear-out, thanks to the high-speed-steel brad-point bit. You might use this tool only once—unless you or a friend build another workbench—but it’s well worth the investment.
