JawHorse

OK folks, I just saw my first ad for this awesome looking product by Rockwell, the JawHorse -- I want one. I would be surprised if one of our member(s) has one and has not told us about it. The reviews on Home Depot and Lowes are all five star ratings. Just one 5* rating from a FarmallCub member will push me over the top and I'll start leaving notes around the house for fathers day :)

The Lowes site also has a video demo. http://www.lowes.com/pd_312963-54602-RK ... facetInfo=

Thanks in advance,
Dennis

I'm glad you showed the link Dennis because I was really lost.
I have a couple different types of Workmate tables that I can live without anymore. I'm sure this would be just a handy, even more when gripping pipe and other types of stock that my tables just can't grip good enough.

Yep, we all need one of those.... :wink: :D

Dennis:

Well I just had a look at the JawHorse :big say what:

Image

All I can say is this is one that is definitely going to be on my list of Iwannahaves :!: I can see uses for it in my shop right off the top especially when it comes to assembling torsion boxes and other larger units where additional hands are a blessing. Biggest problem for me is that I do not have 3 or more hands when I need em. I have 2 of the work-mates and they are good. To get the vertical reach gotta make a jig insert.

Ain't gonna be for Father's Day this year but it is definitely on my wish list for my kids to choose from.

Also interested in any first hand product reviews.

I have owned and used two Black & Decker "WorkMates" for years. Clamping capability is not that great but they do make great tool stands and work surfaces.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Thanks for taking the bullet for everyone Bill E. Great price on Amazon too -- the free shipping is great, because I understand it's a pretty heavy item. Please let us know your likes/dislikes when you get some time to use it. Lord knows I'm always looking for an extra set of hands around the property :)

JawHorse arrived today! Weighs 43lb and is all steel varying in thickness from 1/16" to 1/4". Seems well made, clean welds, good paint good fit up. However, it does originate from China, obviously built to higher specs than most of the stuff from over there. I also have a DeWalt stand grinder from there and I have used the dickens out of it with no problems, again, built to better specs. The Jawhorse comes with a demonstration DVD and instruction booklet (in about 20 languages :roll: ). Will update as I get a chance to put it to use. Looks like it'll be a great 3rd & 4th hand with good clamping force.
