Armor Auto-Pro Dog Fences
Armor Auto-Pro Dog Fences slip into any 3/4'' dog hole to position and brace materials or to set up corners. They can be used with most standard workbenches, and with any work table with 3/4'' holes drilled in the top. Dog Fences are reversible to accommodate variations in thickness. The tall side is 1-1/4'' high, while the short side is 5/8'' high for use with standard 3/4'' stock. Each fence includes two 3'' x 3/4'' dog pegs, which slide in a track on the Dog Fence for easy adjustment of the spacing. Ideal for use with the Armor Auto-Adjust Dog Clamps (#51910, sold separately).
- Hole spacing is easily adjustable.

The basic problem was that the fence along with the workpiece would lift off the bench surface with even a modicum of clamping pressure. That was tolerable for certain sanding operations, but after experimenting with a few different configurations and tasks, (both with the armor in-line clamp and with the clamp half o the FT clamping elements) I just found the fence (and the armor in-line clamp) to be of limited use.
The FT clamping elements on the other hand allow you to lock down both the stop and the clamp from underneath the table so there is no virtually no lift.
Maybe the fence is fine if you just need a planing stop, but I found it (along with the in-line clamp) to be insufficient for the work I was doing.
