Adjustable Bench Stop

By: Phil Huber
Bench dogs are some of the most used accessories in my shop. That said, I often need more stability than one alone can provide. What I came up with is the bench dog stop you see here.

This stop is held in place by two dowel posts that fit into the bench dog holes. I based their hole and slot positions off the holes in my bench. One post is adjustable, allowing this stop to fit even if there’s a variation in bench hole spacings.

That rod is threaded on a bolt while the other is fixed with a wedge. An aluminum bar reinforces the hardwood of the stop, guaranteeing I won’t break it when I really get working.
