Bench Hooks are held against the front edge of a bench or table to support work whilst it is being sawn - and to protect the bench or table!
Features and Applications
Small Bench Hooks can be used for sawing thin strips of softwood with a Junior Hacksaw.
Bench Hooks may have sawing guides to aid cutting mitres for example, and some smaller ones have various clamping devices added to secure the wooden strips.
They are usually made of Beech.
