« Part 10: Neighbors showed up and the top is on Part 11 of Workbench series Part 12: assembled bench dogs ready to solder »

I am making 9 bench dogs out of 3/4 brass rod and 3/8 copper flat bar. Cut the rod to 3” pieces and the copper to 1 1/2 by 1 3/4 rectangles. Drill a 3/4 hole in the copper. mate and silver solder. then find an appropriate size tygon tube. Cut into 7/16 long rings, heat and slip over the copper. Then I’ll be done with another step. 9 very sturdy bench dogs for $60. not bad. Thanks Gary for this COOL idea.

They haven’t been that bad. They sure do look cool when completed. Thanks for the kind words and checking them out.
