In Detail

A perfect holding solution when hand planing thin or wide stock on your bench top. Immensely better than nailing an off-cut of hardboard to your bench. The anodised aluminium rail projects just 5.5mm above the bench top, allowing you to plane boards as thin as 6mm without obstruction. Two steel posts, sized to fit into 19mm or 20mm dog holes, slide along a T-track on the underside of the rail. A second stop at 90° makes your workpiece fully secure when working with a larger workpiece preventing it from skewing under your plane or for making cross-grain planing secure without the obstruction of clamps. Made in Canada.

Excellent aides when planing

I thought of making these from wood but didn't as I think one can benefit from the absolute rigidity of metal. Or perhaps that was just something I told myself to justify the purchase. ;-) In any case, they work absolutely fine and the fact they have adjustable pins make them always fit your dog holes. I have 19mm holes and so bought the respective version of the stops; I must say they fit nicely, even a tad loose so you don't have to use a pry bar ;-) to get them back out. I ordered both lengths available and am happy I did. A quality product that does what it needs to do and - in all its simplicity - does it very well indeed.

So useful

This is one of those accessories that you could make yourself out of scrap wood but for the price and the quality of manufacture they are really worth buying. I have one short and one long planning stop and they are in use all the time on my bench. It is worth being careful when you buy as these, like the other Veritas bench accessories, do come in both 19mm (3/4 inch) and 20mm sizes. Note the two posts slide along the length of the planning stop so it doesn't matter what your dog hole separation distance is.

Another "how did I ever manage without this" gadget

I don't have the space for a proper woodwork bench so use a modified B&D Workmate for clamping timber when planing. Formerly, I used ply or hardboard F-clamped across the jaws to prevent the stock sliding through the clamping pegs. The stop had to be removed every time the jaws were unclamped which became very tedious. Now I just drop the Veritas stop pins into adjacent Workmate jaw holes and they slide in the extruded channel of the stop whenever the Workmate jaws are moved in or out. Despite another reviewer's claim, the pins ARE 19.0mm diameter and fit Workmate 20mm holes and 3/4" (19.05mm) bench dog holes. Now that Axminster has dropped most Veritas prices to a more affordable level, I will probably buy additional longer stops as Workmate clamp peg replacements for certain awkward jobs.

Simplifies work holding for planing.

I have been using these for many months and can honestly say that they are quick and convenient to use. Traditional bench dogs are fine, but these are better, especially for panels, wide boards and thin stock. I would just wish the wider variant was available, ( only 2 of the 3 lengths manufactured, are available in the UK, for some inexplicable reason! ) my bench is wider than the ones stocked.

Also, the 19mm ones do fit 19mm or 3/4" holes, I've been using mine like this since I've had them. Perhaps the other reviewer should have realised he had been mistakenly ordered the wrong size, there is a choice available! Doh!

Does NOT fit 19mm holes as described

If you have 19mm dog holes on your bench this product will not work with them as Axminster are claiming. It even says fits 20mm on the box! It's probably a good product if you have 20mm dog holes but as I don't and most benches don't I've rated it low.
