Are they OK for holding a piece while routing a slot through the middle (housing joint or whatever)?
Are they OK for holding a piece while routing a profile into the edge?
Are they OK for holding a piece while running a belt sander over it?
Are they OK for holding a piece while hand-planing?
Are they OK for holding a piece while belting it from one end with a mallet extreme-croquet style?
(OK, maybe that last one is a bit silly. ;-)
Router mat AKA shelf liner is more versatile and cheaperMrA":v69ptg2m said:Anybody use bench cookies? I saw them on youtube and thought they looked great, before I buy them and then suffers buyers remorse I'd appreciate any feedback.
I built my own work bench and was weighing up whether to use T track or bench dogs, it was when I goggled bench dogs that these cookie thingys showed up. What I particularly liked about them was the ability to continuously rout around a board without having to keep stopping and starting which can't be done with a rubber mat. That seems to be the only advantage I can see at the moment unless a forum member has used them and can feedback their experiences.mtr1":b59pum91 said:

My doghouse is called the garage and I actually like it in there, I want to put a TV in there but I have to sneak one in when she's away in September.
I did offer to share it Doug! It was a good'n too.Doug B":2n69r6m8 said:
You are 3/4 the way there if you don't use MDF.MrA":11pxql96 said:More musings...
I've installed ducting, a cyclone and an air filter yet dust is still present although not as much as before. I kept on wearing my double filter dust mask just be sure until I gained confidence in the duct extraction set up and the filters are still picking up dust.
I've concluded that there isn't an ideal solution for complete dust control, all that can be achieved is a little less hoovering up, fewer extractor bag changes and reducing the workspace "blow out" to once a month.
Unless someone has cracked it and wants to share.

It only takes me 30 minutes to clean up and once a month I get the garden blower and have a great time blasting dust through the door for a few minutes. I dont have the skill nor the patience for hand held tools yet.Cheshirechappie":1ma5ucet said:The ONLY way to avoid dust in the workshop is to avoid the use of power tools and machines (and sanding!).
