Every handyman sometimes needs an extra pair of hands to help juggle home improvement projects. That’s the big idea behind the Rockwell® JawHorse® Sheetmaster(TM) with its incredible clamping force of one metric ton and load bearing capacity of 600 lbs.
This latest member of Rockwell’s family of hands-free, portable workstations does everything the original JawHorse does – plus, it can hold a 4x8 plywood sheet without any additional accessories or assembly. With a clamping capacity up to 49 inches wide, it firmly clamps standard sheet goods in place, as well as work pieces with irregular shapes.
Think hanging doors, supporting drywall; cutting plywood sheets and 4x4s; raising up a bicycle for repairs; holding up cabinets or furniture at a convenient height for refurbishing; sanding and finishing any number of large, awkward work pieces. You also can create a temporary workbench or miter saw table or tile saw in minutes.
JawHorse Sheetmaster takes the place of workbenches, stands, saw horses, vices and clamps. You can set up shop in the basement, garage, patio, jobsite or wherever else your project takes you.
Sheetmaster has the same patented foot pedal design as the original JawHorse. Each stroke of the pedal closes the workstation’s jaws by 1 in. This pumping action compresses the 8 in. x 3 in. steel jaws until the work piece is clamped securely. The foot pedal is equipped with a stirrup to prevent your foot from slipping.
Innovations added to Sheetmaster include auto-locking leg latches to speed setup and teardown. Just slide a button to release the front legs. In place of the JawHorse’s cylinder roller, Sheetmaster features two urethane, inline skate-type wheels that carry the workstation over hard surfaces and uneven terrain.
A new rear foot on the Sheelmaster has a non-slip grip, plus the base of the foot is wider to minimize sinking into soft ground. This third leg has a built-in hand grip, which doubles as a carrying handle.
The portable, hands-free work station is constructed of heavy-gauge, powder-coated steel throughout, and weighs 52.9 lbs. Its wide-stance tripod design keeps all three non-slip feet firmly on the ground, even when the surface is uneven.
The Sheetmaster measures 46 in. L x 35-1/2 in. W x 34-3/4 in. H when opened. When not in use, it folds to a compact 37-1/4 in. L x 14-5/8 in. W x 13-7/8 in. H. It fits conveniently into vehicles, truck beds, closets, workshops or garages.
You can multiply the usefulness of Sheetmaster by adding accessories (sold separately) for performing specific tasks. These include:
