Retail therapy. People get a thrill from shopping!
I am that very sucker with a great collection of UJK doggery stuff!! (Not so fond of the Benchdogs brand. Not as well finished or designed imo) Are they necessary? No. But for a hobbyist like me they do help me do a better job and they are shiny and fun .The bench dog thing seems to be the latest big money spinner for the gadget salesmen.
I've got one on my bench which I made myself and is used a lot. It's a 1 1/2" square piece of oak in a mortice, hammered up or down as necessary
The trend nowadays is to persuade people they need dozens of them, precision made, holes all over their benches, different designs and add-ons, no end in sight!
Every gadget needs another gadget, or an improved version of the first gadget to make up for its deficiencies.
Most obvious with sharpening jigs where there is a hierarchy of jigs, each one being more expensive and more useless than the last.
Never give a sucker an even break!
I'd be interested to know what people do with them. Parfitt didn't show anything in his own vids - surely there's more to it than just how to install them?I am that very sucker with a great collection of UJK doggery stuff!!

In cases like this, post the price you paid and the date.Pretty sure they have hiked the prices up, I didn’t pay anything like the prices quoted for my rail square a few months ago.
Another Black Friday Con.
What I expected then (see my post above). The discount applies to certain items only - as is normal with Black Friday deals.Yesterday and this morning (Monday) tried using the discount on the Rail Square (Festool) and the checkout said that that the discount did not apply To that item. Used 3 different devices to ensure this was not a browser glitc. Disappointed
So for others that might wonder, these are the prices I paid and what they are now, no discounts included.In cases like this, post the price you paid and the date.
I shall do mine in the morning
