I scratched the bottom of one of my planes on a brass bench dog yesterday, so I made a set of wooden bench dogs today. They work great and I no longer have to worry about damaging my planes.

Nice dogs! I know this awesome guy who taught me to flatten the bottom of a plane on a piece of glass. Hopefully, that trick will help you out with that scratch. Have you sold your drill press yet?

Most excellent improvement. Your planes thank you! :-)

Thanks guys. Yes, the drill press sold.

Klaus – The ball creates pressure to hold it in place, but you have to recess the side of the dog a bit so the brass rim around the ball doesn’t stick out past the edges of the dog.

Nice. Surprised nobody asked you where you got the spring loaded little ball bearing thingy.

Walden, great idea. Picked up a small jar of them there spring-bally-brassy-thingamabobs this past summer so now I can put them to good use!

What are they called? I can’t find em.

And don’t get frustrated with me. This info should have been included in the project post.
