Veritas Wonder Dog
Wonder Dog clamps? Well, you have to wonder why nobody thought of them before and then wonder if you can get along without them.
At the lowest projection, only 5/8 in. of the dog head is above the bench. The swivel handle lets you apply ample clamping pressure in any position. The dog is drilled and tapped at a 3 Degrees angle to ensure that work is held tight to the bench.
At 6-1/2 in.long, these dogs can be used anywhere you can drill a 3/4 in. hole.
Made in Canada. Patented.

Cutting square bench dog mortises is hard enough when you are building a bench; it is particularly difficult in a finished bench. Yet good dogs make a bench far more functional.
These bench dogs are made from solid brass rod and can be installed in any bench by drilling a 3/4in. hole. Brass dogs are not only non-corroding, but are kinder to your tools if you happen to slip and strike one with a sharp edge. The combined crosshatching and 2 Degrees inward slope of the dog face hold wood very securely. The side spring lets the dog slide smoothly, but holds it well at any desired projection.
The bench dogs (at 4-3/8 on.) are standard length. The Bench Pups (at 2-3/8 in.) are fine for benches with tops up to 2" thick and are ideal for use in bench sides; just drill holes in the skirt or the edge of the top. Both work well with Wonder Dog and Wonder Pup clamps.
The set of Veritas pups is perfect for clamping on the front of any bench or table where you can drill 3/4 in. diameter holes. Includes one Bench Pup and one Wonder Pup clamp.
