Veritas® Bench Blade
This is essentially a low-profile bench dog with a quick-release sliding jaw for holding work. Dubbed a "blade" due to its flat design, it projects just 1/4" above a work surface to permit maximum access to a workpiece. Used much like a toggle clamp, it has a thumb-operated eccentric cam lever to control the sliding jaw, so you can quickly secure or release work.
With 1/4" range of travel, the jaw has limited throw, but applies up to 300 lb of clamping force. Flats on the cam provide secure stops at 1/8" and 1/4" of travel. The 1-1/2" x 1/4" jaw face has a 5° inward cant to help hold wood securely. The cam and jaw are cast steel, heat-treated for surface hardness, and the post and wedge-lock mechanism are turned steel.
version is for use in a through-hole or a blind hole that is at least 1-7/8" deep. The
is usable at any angle from horizontal to vertical, and anchors firmly in a through-hole in material as thin as 5/8" (depending on the strength of the material), or in a blind hole that is a minimum of 1-3/8" deep. Both styles of post are available sized for 3/4" or 20mm diameter dog holes.
Made in Canada. Patented.
