TDS-13 Low Profile Dog Stops

(16 reviews) Write a Review
  • The perfect stop for biscuit or Domino joining.
  • TDS-13 Low Profile, Extra Long Dog Stop
  • TDS-13 is long enough to be positioned at 45° angles and shallow enough to fit under your guide rail for track saw cutting operations.
  • Batching panels? Make one measurement, set the TDS-13s as fences, and duplicate cuts with repeatable precision.
  • Gang two TDS-13s together to form a long back fence for your 20mm worktop.
  • Lock the position of TDS-13 by securing at least one dog.
  • Capture the workpiece on your table for sanding, planing or scraping.
  • Confirm squareness of your workpiece by positioning TDS-13s in a perpendicular layout.
  • Cross section view showing how the TDS-13 installs into your 20mm hole patterned worktop.


The TDS-13 is sold in pairs (purchase "1" quantity and you will receive two TDS-13 Dog Stops and four Chamfer Dogs).
Note: TDS-13 requires chamfered 20mm dog holes in your work surface, easily cut with a Combined Chamfer & Reaming Tool, Hand Chamfer Tool (for use only with MDF/HDF tops), or any quality 45° chamfer router bit with pilot bearing.

A Versatile Addition to Your 20mm Hole Patterned Worktop

TDS-13 introduction video
Watch this video for a glimpse into some of the many use cases for this versatile accessory and perfect companion to your 20mm workbench.

If we could pick only one accessory for our 20mm hole patterned worktop, it just might be a pair of these TDS-13 Dog Stops™ purely for their versatility. Distinguished by their low profile of just 9.5mm (⅜”) in thickness and extended length of 340mm (13-⅜”), a pair of our TDS-13s are a great solution for:

  • Workpiece locating and general workholding. Need to cut a series of identically sized cabinet components? Measure just once, install a pair of TDS-13 Dog Stops and extend them so they contact your workpiece opposite the edge to be cut, and lock them in this exact position by securing two hex screws from the top. The TDS-13 retains its position—even when removed or re-installed into your worktop.
  • The ultimate material stop. Domino® mortising, sanding, planing and scraping are all made easier with the TDS-13 used as an extended length material stop. Deploy a pair of TDS-13s in perpendicular positions to capture your workpiece along two edges, or use in conjunction with an inline clamp like our Power-Loc Toggle Clamp to completely immobilize it. At only 9.5mm (⅜”) thick, you can comfortably sand, plane and scrape workpieces as thin as ½” (12.7mm) without worrying about the TDS-13 interfering with your work.
  • A 45° or 90° fence for precise cuts with your track saw. With its extended length, the TDS-13 can span four 20x96mm dog holes when positioned at 0 or 90°, or three dog holes when positioned at a 45° angle. It’s thin enough to fit under a guide rail, making it an ideal material stop for track sawing operations. Butt the ends of two TDS-13s together and you now have a contiguous fence measuring 680mm (26-¾”) in length.
  • Verify squareness. Position two TDS-13s in a perpendicular layout to quickly validate the squareness of a drawer box, or force it square during glue-up with an inline clamp.

Even when removed and re-inserted, the TDS-13 returns exactly to its original position thanks to the inclusion of two DoubleGroove Chamfer Dogs. Unlike traditional bench dogs which typically feature a large diameter collar that extends above the worktop, these dogs feature a small 45° chamfer allowing them to sit flush with your work surface. This design detail also allows us to make the TDS-13 as thin as possible.

Don't Forget to Chamfer!

Chamfering a 20mm hole patterned worktop To get the best experience with our TDS-13 Dog Stops, you must use them in chamfered 20mm dog holes. We offer a Hand Chamfer Tool suitable for adding this chamfer to MDF/HDF worktops, as well as a Combined Chamfer & Reamer Tool which adds the chamfer while also enlarging your dog holes with uniform precision. For hardwood veneered plywood, a quality 45° chamfer router bit will make quick work of chamfering your dog holes. Chamfering your work surface holes provides another added benefit: by removing the hard edges, you reduce the likelihood of pinching a finger. (Not that it's ever happened to us.)

    I only assembled them and worked with them for 15 minutes. I’m sure they will meet my expectations without any issues.

    TSO Dog Sops

    Posted by Henderson Dan on 16th Apr 2024

    I love the dog stops and would’ve given it the highest rating… However… One of them came without the hardware used to hold it down. I called And was promised I would have the hardware shipped to me Two Day. That was over a week ago and I still don’t have the parts I need for the stop to work properly. Very disappointed in the service… But I’m sure I will love them when I can use them.

    Awesome product.

    Great product. I am adopting the whole 32mm mindset. These allow me to speed up assembly by creating custom assembly and clamping set-ups based on the work I’m doing. They hold fast and remain where I set them. As the need arises, I’ll get more without reservation.
