Rockwell RK9000 Jawhorse

The Jawhorse is great for those tasks that require a second pair of hands. It's the best selling of the woodworking tools and the top rated best seller in the workstation category. The clamp is foot operated and will apply up to 1000lbs of pressure, the jaws of the vice can expand to a lengthy 37" wide, and the placement and release of material is done in a flick of a switch.

The manufacture and design is awesome - the tripod legs deliver a solid, level and stable work area and the whole thing collapses down into a compact, easily transportable piece of kit. It's versatile - clamps onto doors in situ, will hold large items securely in place while you work on them and aide precision cutting and drilling. It's built like a tank, works like a dream and is worth every penny of it's current selling price.
