At 2-3/4" long, the versatile Wonder Pup® clamp can be used anywhere you can drill a 3/4" hole. It makes it easy to clamp curved work and irregular shapes. Since the dog head has two screw holes,...
Using a Wonder Pup® in combination with a standard round bench dog, you can make a clamp of any length by drilling 3/4" holes in a 2 x 4, 2 x 6, etc. Two pieces of plywood with 2 x 4s between them for spacing can be drilled in a pattern to provide clamping for curved work and an infinite variety of other shapes. At the lowest projection, only 5/8" of the dog head is above the bench. The swivel handle lets you apply ample clamping pressure in any position. The dog is drilled and tapped at a 3° angle to ensure that work is held tight to the bench.
The Wonder Pup® post is 2-3/4" and has an O-ring to allow for variable height clamping. For use in bench fronts, drill-press jigs, etc.

Wonder Pup works great
Use this instead of end vice. Works great. I nicked the post the first time i used it with my smoothing plane. I just filed it flat and it works fine. Very pleased with this tool.
Fragile Pups_ Updated
I'm Begat who gave a negative rating to these pups. I contacted Veritas about the problem and they shipped a pair of new pups to me at no cost. I have used them several times since with no problem. They did the right thing and that counts for a lot.
This is a great product. I have a workbench with a face vise but no end vise. I drilled dog holes down the length of the bench. Using a dog on one end and this as my end vise I can work on a long board securely.
The brass blocks on the wonder pups are held in place by a ring that pops off. This product is an expensive device and should have a better design. Veritas is slipping.
