This is a bench dog i came up with to hold boards against for belt sanding or similar functions. Basically its a nut epoxied into the bench top…and one only needs to reach underneath to adjust the threaded rod to any height needed.

Interesting. Are you using in conjunction with a vise?

Wayne, no, its just a convenient stop to keep the wood from scooting around. I like it for belt sanding because even if im sanding something a 1/4’ thick, i can raise the stop only 3/16” and it isnt in the way of the sanding belt.

I bet it would be great for planing boards as well. Thanks Miles.

That’s a good idea! I knew wayne would be the first to reply to this. He’s dog-obsessed!
