A solid, cast iron holdfast and four tight-fit alloy workbench surface dogs.
One of Australia's most popular workbench holdfasts, essential in any workshop or worksite, now available packaged with four tight-fit alloy surface dogs as well! Made by Aussie workbench manufacturers Torquata and Baladonia, the bench holdfast is a proven industry favourite. While the alloy bench dogs included in this kit are incredibly variable – with tapered edges and a solid yet non-marring build. The perfect combination.
The large, ergonomic grip is made from two-component plastic and it easily yields high clamping pressure with just a few turns. The large 44mm-diameter rubber pressure plate ensures non-marring clamping of the workpiece while the serrated (fluted) shaft securely fits into any 19 mm (¾in) hole.
The bench holdfast screw is galvanized, with an overall length of 155mm. Maximum working height is 115mm, when shaft inserted the recommended 60mm into the dog hole and the throat capacity (measured from the middle of the pressure plate to the inner leg of the shaft) is 125mm.
A real benefit is that it can be used by either exerting increasing pressure using the screw mechanism or used traditionally by quickly knocking it into and out of place with the tap on the arm with a mallet.
Alloy Surface Dogs
Machined from aluminium, these dogs have a flat face for work registration and a rim that supports and stabilizes it on the bench surface. The post fits tightly in a 19mm (3/4in) workbench dog hole, resisting movement from horizontal forces. The flat face measure 20mm wide x 18mm high with the post approximately 45mm long and tapered edges making it easier to insert in your workbench.
