The Seneca Woodworking Clamp Dog™ bench dog is a combination bench dog and clamp mounting plate designed for the Festool MFT tables. The dog portion allows you to take advantage of the grid of holes in the MFT to make precise cuts. The clamp mount portion of the Clamp Dog™ is pre-drilled with mounting holes that allow you to attach either a Kreg Automaxx Bench Klamp, or a Bessey Auto-Adjust Toggle Clamp for quick, accurate clamping of your workpiece.
Seneca Woodworking Clamp Dogs are designed with the clamp mount "tangent" to the MFT dog, rather than on center. Our design also uses hole offset dimensions similar to Qwas Products Qwas Dogs and other similar MFT dogs on the market, so they can be used interchangeably for accurate positioning.
This "tangent" design, allows the clamp to pivot around the mounting hole, rather than on top of it. This allows more usable workspace on the MFT, and also allows the clamps to be positioned at various angles for more effective clamping, while not affecting the positioning of the workpiece.
Machined from a solid block of aircraft grade aluminum and anodized black, the Seneca Woodworking Clamp Dogs will give you years of reliable service.
Seneca Woodworking Clamp dogs are intended to be secured under the MFT table with the included clamping knob for maximum clamping force. With the clamps set to lower clamping force, they will clamp without the knob using a 'racking' action similar to how "holdfast" clamps work, however since the MFT top is made from MDF and thinner than most benchtops designed for racking style clamps like holdfasts, the MFT top can wear over time and we recommend using the clamping knob for the most secure clamping action.
Included with each Clamp Dog™ are mounting hardware for Bessey Toggle Clamps (Kreg clamps include mounting hardware) and a hand knob to secure it to the MFT table.
Note: Clamp Dog™ do not include Bessy or Kreg clamps.
