Seth, Thanks for this list. I have been agonizing over which bench dogs to simplify my table to fence arrangements.
There are so many "dogs" out there, I can hardly sort them out for the din.
You have simplified my search for the best fit for my own uses.

Not sure if it qualifies given it's specific use but I just remembered the Colin's coping foot.  Don't think it works with the new jigsaw but I just put one on my older model http://www.collinstool.com/base.php?page=collins_coping_foot.htm

Also kind of dubious to call them an accessory but if you use Festool's rail connectors to join rails I highly suggest picking up some aftermarket M6 x 6mm set screws with a hex drive before you strip out the slotted set screws that come with the connectors.

Regarding the Collins coping foot,  I ordered one for my PSB since I love the one for my Bosch. It is exactly the same but with a small added slot for clearance. One could modify an existing foot to work with a PSB.

Another option for Parallel Guides for Festool/Makita tracks
http://www.senecawoodworking.com/products/parallel-guide-system-for-incra-t-track-plus

these look like they will not have the issues with dipping that the Festool ones suffer from

Thanks for the links. I like the Seneca Parallel Guides, them look like they are easier to use than the Festool guide and allow for wider ripping.

 I ordered the domino 1/2 ,3/4" offset fence from Seneca on their Labor day sale & asked if I could get the parallel guides as well at the special price BUT Seneca Woodworking  has a newly redesigned  rail guides that are just being released after Labor day so they didn't have the current in stock .
 a cut & paste from a email from Ryan about the new stuff 
Quote
Michael,

Thank you for your order!    We're actually launching an improved version of the Parallel Guide system this week. Unfortunately because of that, it's not available at the Labor Day sale price.
here a vid review link for the Dominio new parts  as well    that  was emailed to me by  Ryan of Seneca as well

I've emailed Seneca Woodworking but no replies.  I'm interested in their Parallel Guides. Can someone tell me what the min/max cutoff dimensions are for various T-Track Plus lengths  (or any of them -- with values for one I can determine the others.)

Thanks!

Update:  I just heard from Ryan at Seneca.  The answer is:  Add 7" to the length of the T-Track Plus.  So, a set of 18" T-tracks would allow up to 25" of ripping capacity.

What's wrong with mentioning an American-made line of products for the MFT?
On this forum's advice, I went looking for the "Qwas" rail and bench dogs.  Way overpriced compared to similar offerings here:  http://www.precisiondogs.us
I have no idea how the quality/reputation compares, but a set of dogs from Precision costs $69, whereas same set from Qwas is $98.

Thank you Seth,

I just ordered a Betterley straight line connector. I've struggled with connecting my guide rails now for a while. It was just what I was looking for.  [big grin]

I have been using Precision dogs for half a year now.
Absolutely no regrets, nicely done (all dimensions on mine are with margin error +/_0.01mm) and fitment is excellent.

This D36 to D27 tool end hose adapter is well made and fits well for both cleaning tool attachments and tool ports. The fit into the D36 hose is really tight. The fit on the tool ports seemed a little loose at first but is a good strong connection when pushed all the way on. Certainly handy to have.

You got it bad dood…

I used the Qwas Dogs as the "reference" for fine tuning the 20mm holes on my CNC'd MFT-style benchtop.  I am happy to report that I received Parf Dogs in both standard and tall sizes from Lee Valley, and they fit like a glove also. I am probably going to use them for some jigs to hold long clamps on my workbench for when I glue up panels, or really anywhere I need to keep the clamps steady as I juggle the items to be clamped.  I fear my collection of dogs could grow like my collection of clamps.  I just cannot seem to convince myself I have enough ... and that seems to be a common issue with many woodworkers.

I just picked up a Bosch VAC005, 35mm x 16' vacuum hose. The small end fits nice and snug in the dust port on my 55REQ. The big end fits in the 2 1/4" inlet on my 16 gal Ridgid shop vac, as well as a 2 1/4"-4" adapter for my dust collector. The hose is fairly flexible and the tool end rotates to help keep the hose from twisting up. I've never used Festools hose, so I can't do a comparison. For $35 with free shipping on Amazon, it think it's a good alternative to the Festool hose for $150. Unfortunately, the tool end of the hose is about 1/8" too small to fit over the dust ports on my Bosch 6" r.o. or my Bosch pad sanders. Way to go Bosch! Guess that's another use for Gorilla tape.

I got that same hose it is a quality hose for sure @ a fraction of the cost of the same size Festool hose .

*Update*

I came up with a remedy for the Bosch hose not fitting the dust port adapters on my Bosch sanders. I used a hack saw to cut 4 kerfs in the male end of the sanders hose adapters. They now compress enough to fit into the hose, but are tight enough that the hose won't fall off.
