Great design! But what is the bench dog without the peg for? Am I missing something?
I would like to only print the bench dog with peg, but both are in one file. Any reason for this?

Thanks for the kind words :)

The bench dog without a peg without peg extension is meants to be printed with an m6 bolt protuding from it, so that you can screw it into the actual beg (from underneath the table) to secure it
It's really just a customized bench dog with a peg_depth set to 0

So if you don't want/need it you can either:

  • create a customized bench dog that fits your need (the peg may not be drawn in thingiverse's customizer at the default 19.1mm diameter, but it will be printed)
  • import the provided stl in your slicer and delete the pegless part (you may need to "split into objects" with cura)

I'll post more samples of various sized bench dogs and bench dogs usages, if I ever get the time to print some

Perfect answer, thanks!

What size nut is the downloadable model?

Default is M6
