As far as I am aware there is not another decent quality track square available for Bosch track saws. Not only does this fill that gap, but the design that supports pretty much every track saw on the market in ONE square is amazing. Quality is top notch. Machined to precision. Incredibly accurate. Packed like a quality tool complete with a calibration report for each individual square. Shipping to the states was surprisingly fast. As a hobbyist with mid range tools, I put this right there with my few Lee Neilsen hand tools in terms of quality, but even better in affordability. I intend to be a Benchdog customer for life.
I have the 625mm version.
Setup was a breeze thanks to the instructional video.
Precise fitting parts, smooth operation. It makes the CSC SYS 50 much more stable and safe to operate.
The scale, flag stop and the material support make for repeatable cuts while your focus remains on the blade.
Afterwards the unit comes off the machine in one piece and stores easily on my wall.
First time buyer, will be back for more.
Best parallel guides by far, the pointer is so easy to line up accurately no guess work. Perfect cut completely parallel along the whole 2.4mtrs not even a fraction of a mm out.
The usual Benchdog high quality very pleased.
I’ve had both the festool and genuine woodpecker guides in the past and it is easily ahead of them.
I cannot fault it. I wasn't 100% too sure how to put it together. You want to be right, so that you don't damage it. I watched a video for the old set up and just applied it to the new set up. What a deliciously sublime piece of workmanship. I kid you not, this was calibrated out of the box!!! I've tested it and it's spot on. I do not get impressed that easy, as i was hounded mercessly in University, that 'the devil is in the details' and 'Less is more'. If i had to use a quote to sum us Benchdogs UK, it would be those two, by Mies Van Der Rohe - hands down!
The icing on the cake is that i don't need to go to Woodpecker now 😝 I'll be purchasing ALL my measuring tools from Benchdogs uk!
Ralph please make a small Paolini Pocket Rule. Now that would be awesome. I'm pretty sure you'll get to it anyhow. I'll take everything you have thanks!
I'm also very grateful you helped me out with my shipping. Thankyou. I think there may be a few tweaks like including the tax before checkout. Even though it's stated clearly, i just wish it wasn't, cause you still get burnt at checkout, so you have to be careful to not overspend. However, if you guys were to add Cleapay 🙏🏽, it would be the end of my financial worries. I could buy 2 -3 items a pop, instead of just one. Klarna is as useful as a chocolate teapot. It's like using something that is going through hot flushes. One minute it's yes, then it's no. It's extremely demoralising when you need equipment.
Aside that. 5 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
Brilliant solution to a problem I didn’t fully realise I had before I found these…and now I can’t live without them.
Turn any MFT style top into a normal workbench to stop those irritating small items falling through the 20mm grid holes, stops glue getting into them and stops the dust and shavings collecting beneath the workbench.
Fantastic. Million times more convenient than having to use dogs and rail clips. Wish I had bought it sooner!
I've been using the 1200mm fence system for awhile now. I also added the right hand fence and the rail hinge. These components complement each other incredibly well. An MFT system (either Festool or a home-built equivalent) combined with the Benchdogs products gives garage woodworkers the ability to produce extremely accurate cabinet parts. The only other way to achieve this kind accuracy and repeatability on large panels would be with a giant sliding table saw costing over $10K!
Building Euro-style cabinetry requires sub-millimeter accuracy or else the cabinet boxes, drawers and doors don't go together properly. This system allows average woodworkers to produce professional-level results.
For anyone with a track saw and an MFT of any kind, I cannot recommend the Benchdogs systems highly enough. The quality of machining is top notch and they also stand behind their products. The setup videos Ralph creates are also very helpful. I always like to support smaller companies who product great products and stand behind them. Shipping costs to Canada and the US are high, but I've come to accept it because the products are so good.
I have a 3' x 6' shop-built MFT based on the excellent Ron Paulk torsion box bench. I added a Benchdogs fence system to it and used rail dogs under my Bosch guide rail to square it to the fence. This worked fine and produced accurate cuts, but it was a pain to lift up the guide rail in between cuts because the rail dogs fit very snugly into the bench holes.
I bought the Quad Hinge system and it has been a game-changer for my workflow. The fact that it integrates with the dog holes on my bench was a big plus for me. The MFT already offers a super-accurate grid of holes that are perfectly square to each other so it only makes sense to use them to mount a rail hinge. Seems obvious and yet all the other rail hinges on the market require various types of extruded mounting rails to be added to the bench. The Benchdogs approach is simple and effective. My holes were too far from the edge so I did have to add 2 holes on each side, but that was trivial using the excellent UJK Parf jig. If you don't have a Parf jig, Benchdogs has you covered with an inexpensive router jig which does the same thing.
Highly recommend the Quad Hinge system. Machining is top-notch as with all of the Benchdogs products.
The Benchdogs Stainless T-Square is a game-changer for woodworking! Its flawless precision and stainless steel durability ensure precise measurements and square every time. Lightweight and ergonomic, it's a joy to use, while its versatility as a straight edge adds to its value. Highly recommended for serious woodworkers!
The customer service provided by Benchdogs deserves special mention. When I had a question about the product, their support team was friendly and prompt in their response. It's evident that they genuinely care about their customers and stand behind the quality of their products.
Bought the fence system bundle to take the stress out of 'on site' consistency for making cabinets etc..
The bench dogs fence, once set up correctly, is something which has given me confidence and speed with the accuracy of square cuts. Quick and easy. Great product. Engineered well , feels and looks good.
Quality product and incredibly accurate like most Benchdogs items. I have a variety of measuring and marking tools, many mechanical, some digital and this triangle has made me realise how much the others vary in accuracy. This is absolutely spot on and now my go to square. Please consider making a range of these is different sizes so I can replace all my others. Service and support from Benchdogs is also superb.
I bought a pair of these after seeing them on the Bisch Basch Bosch YouTube channel because I had a huge amount of repetitive cuts to make and I don’t have one of those Festool swing down bracket things on my homemade MFT bench. What can I say about these dogs except they are simply brilliant. Used in connection with a flag stop and rail it was a matter of moments to get set up and start cutting. Since then I’ve also made a number of squares which is simple using this set up. The quality of the dogs and the machining is second to none, in fact they are just invoice things to hold. Not only that the service was, as usual excellent A great product at a great price.
