Folks, I have an excellent Sjojberg work bench. Excuse my Swedish if I spelled that wrong.
The only problem is the dog holes. They are round but aren’t 3/4. Rather they seem to be 1 inch or possibly 25 millimeters.
Woodcraft sells one hold down that works with those holes, essentially a one-ended 1-inch pipe clamp, but the clutch on it slips so it doesn’t work. I’d love to have one of those wrung iron hold downs that you tap with a mallet, but I can’t find one that works. I’ve bought three different hold downs for 1-inch dog holes, the only ones I can find, and they all stink. 1 specs at one inch and is too wide to fit the holes, plus it is 16 inches long and thus would hit the cabinets below the bench top. And one broke while being tightened using hand pressure alone. Not good.
Any suggestions here, including possible vendors?
