Bruno,

While I can't give any specifics for use with Kreg bench dogs, the standard size for bench dog holes is 3/4".  As for spacing them I have never heard of a standard.  I would suggest spacing them based on the travel of your vise.  You want to be able to secure the work piece between the bench dog and the tab on the vise, so the maximum spacing you could use is the travel distance.  I would probably space them closer to give more clamping flexibility.

Hope this helps, Don

Thank you Don; very much appreciated!

3/4 or 19mm is the Kreg standard hole size. Festool is 20mm as are most dogs from metric countries.

Kreg mobile work centre spacing is 4" I belive and Festool use 96mm with Kreg shelf pin Jig and Bosch guide rail at 32mm can do spaces at 64 and 96. Shelf pin jig works for me on edges as my holesaw set has the matching pilot hole size.

Inline clamp has about 4.5" travel so either 4" or 96mm will work. My bench clamps have Armor 3/4 dogs with some 5/16 allthread so I avoid having to reach under the table and I can box it off for down draft dust collection.

Miter Saw Recommendation 1 Reply

I’m looking to upgrade my miter saw. I’m willing to invest a good amount of money to get one with the precision pocket hole joinery requires. Would anyone like to offer a recommended model?

New Kreg 720Pro

I saw the video Kreg put out for this new jig and had high hopes for it.

I purchased one today and am very disappointed with it.

First the docking station is extremely cheap. The plastic is pathetic. A Lego has more…

Not Pleased With Pocket Hole Construction

Several months ago, I purchased the Kreg K4MS so that I could build the Lego Table as outlined on the companion "buildsomething" web site which exclusively uses pocket hole construction.  I have considerable experience with conventional…
