BenchJaws provides hands-free clamping right from the workbench

JawHorse and BenchJaws make sense for do-it-yourselfers, builders, remodelers, woodworkers, automotive enthusiasts, light industrial uses and hobbyists.

Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) December 12, 2012

In the beginning, there was JawHorse (RK9003, $159.99), a portable, three-legged workstation that holds work pieces of various configurations up to 37 in. wide with a clamping force up to one metric ton (2,200 lbs). JawHorse handles loads up to 600 lbs. This jobsite marvel takes the place of workbenches, stands, saw horses, vises and clamps. At days-end, it folds up to ride in the bed of a pick-up or to be stored in a garage corner.

From JawHorse has evolved the new space-saving BenchJaws (RK9006, $99.99), which provides hands-free clamping right from the workbench. Like JawHorse, the clamping jaws are foot-pedal operated, leaving the operator’s hands free. Pumping the pedal closes the jaws by ¾ in. with each stroke. BenchJaws mounts to a corner of a workbench via a steel, L-shaped plate. JawHorse and BenchJaws are constructed of heavy gauge, power-coated steel. Jaw face plates are non-marring polyurethane.

JawHorse and BenchJaws make sense for do-it-yourselfers, builders, remodelers, woodworkers, automotive enthusiasts, light industrial uses and hobbyists. Think hanging doors, cutting lumber, raising up a bicycle for repairs, installing crown molding, sanding and finishing any number of large, awkward work pieces. You also can create a temporary workbench or miter saw table in minutes.

Now meet another family member with special talent, JawHorse Sheetmaster (RK9002, $219.99). Beside doing everything JawHorse can do, Sheetmaster accommodates 4x8 plywood sheet without additional accessories or tools for assembly. Its clamping capacity of 0-49 in. wide handles standard sheet goods, irregular shapes and other work pieces. Auto-locking leg latches speed setup and teardown. Two inline skate-type wheels are included for portability.

Two additional JawHorse descendents are the Rockwell JawStand (RK9033, $59.99) and JawStand XP (RK9034, $79.99). These work stands support loads up to 220 lbs., clamp work pieces up to 1¾ in. thick and raise them up to 43 in. off the ground. The support head pivots 0 to 90 degrees, swivels 360 degrees and rests on a heavy-duty tripod base.

The deluxe JawStand XP has a micro-adjustment feature that allows the head to be adjusted +/- 2 in., even under load. It also features a quick-release cam lock on the clamp. Once the clamp’s width is set, the cam lock allows for quick release and resets to the exact width every time. JawStand and JawStand XP work great for mounting cabinets, holding doors for installation or serving as an outfeed support for cutting sheet goods and molding.

BenchJaws, JawHorse, JawHorse Sheetmaster, JawStand and JawStand XP are available on http://www.rockwelltools.com and other popular websites, as well as home centers and hardware stores.
