SSYTC009 Rockwell JawHorse

Update – a clarification required:

The Rockwell JawHorse seen in the following video will be sold as the Worx Pro, and most Worx Pro tools will be green in colour.  The current Rockwell JawHorse in Australia (let’s call it the Junior JawHorse) is also sold as an orange Worx model (not Worx Professional).  Really, there isn’t any real confusion here, other than the fact that because my site goes out worldwide so I have to clarify the similarities and differences between different offerings.  If this was an Australian dedicated website, or a US one or whatever, it would be a lot more striaghtforward!!

——————————–

The Rockwell JawHorse has been designed by the same engineers who came up with the original Triton SuperJaws – a tool that I have found indispensable in my workshop for many years for a whole raft of roles. The JawHorse can be considered the latest iteration in the development path, being larger and stronger than any previous model, and with some really nice refinements that long time users would appreciate, including spring-powered leg retaining tongues for the front legs, even larger, stronger jaws, and some really interesting accessories to boot.

I regularly use the JawHorse as a clamp – be that for boxes, or panels, or pretty anything else that needs gripping/ constricting, as a press for bearings, as a bike stand for bike maintenance, as a press for assembling the most delicate of wooden pens, for holding logs while chainsawing, for holding metal components while welding, as an anvil, as a tool stand (either in the shop or on location) and as a vice, just to name a few.

To me, it is an integral part of my workshop tools (and in fact I have 3 of them (2 being the old SuperJaws) – I had 5 at one stage!!)

My simple answer to anyone contemplating getting one, is simply do it, and thank me later!  There are not many tools that I’d say that about without assessing the specific needs of that person – this tool is so versatile I can’t think of anyone it wouldn’t suit.  That’s about the strongest endorsement I’ve given any tool, ever.

If you are in the US/Canada (or normally buy from Rockler), you can get the JawHorse and its accessories from here.  Yes, I do get a commission if you buy via that link, but my whole hearted endorsement has NOTHING to do with any potential sales.  I’d say exactly the same irrespective.  I don’t mind getting a commission for any sales though 🙂 If you are in Australia, you can get the smaller brother of this tool at Mitre 10 (also called the Rockwell JawHorse which has very similar capabilites to the Chinese made Superjaws). If you are particularly interested in the model shown here, it will be available in Oz later this year under the brand Worx Pro.  Sadly, I don’t get any commissions from those sales!!

Watch the video, see what you think, and by all means ask any questions, or raise any concerns you may have.
