Thread: Rockwell Jawhorse

  1. #1

    Rockwell Jawhorse

    Just bought myself a Rockwell Jawhorse. I haven't used it yet but based on
    Amazon reviews I had to get myself one. I also bought the plywood attach-
    ment for it. Just wondering if any of you have one of these Jawhorses and what is your opinion of it. While I was at it I bought a Bosch 18v Litheon drill. I have had a nicad 18v Bosch drill/hammerdrill which is a great drill except for the fact that it is heavy enough to be used for a boat anchor. I had
    previously bought a Makita 18v Lithium drill but it had too much wobble in the
    chuch so I took it back to my local hardware store. I had told them that I had
    read reviews in which some folks brought up the fact that the particular drill
    I was looking at might have been manufactured with an off-center chuck, and
    sure enough, mine did. I wasn't satisfied and went to Lowes where I pur-
    chased the Bosch for less than the Makita, and it has a much higher look and
    quality feel to it.

    I've got the Jawhorse and love it. It has made some impossible jobs possible out on certain job sites. Around the shop I've used it for holding 16'+ pieces of wood for working on. In other words, it does everything advertised. I've had it almost a year and no problems.
    That's not even a smile! That's just a bunch of teeth playing with my mind!

    Geez, Don, do you really need a picture of everything that's ever been made or bought? Get a catalog, and quit your incessant nagging for unnecessary pictures.

    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Don be so hard with Don Jim, I was going to ask for pictures as well because I don't know what a jawhorse is. Some of us are not that familiar with some tool names

    Thanks a lot Dave, now I know how they look like. I wish they sold them here.

    Thanks Don, and sorry for taking the beating.

    Thanks. Knowing what is being talked about helps.
    Looks handy but expensive.

    I didn't know what they looked like either so I did a search and found their you tube video demonstration.
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgkvNQBHAcU

    It looks a little clunky for some of the applications but pretty useful overall, but what confuses me is how does one person gets a sheet of drywall up to the ceiling by himself using this. I can see the unit holding one end up, but not how it got there with just one person. Maybe I'm even dumber than I thought.

    I've seen them at one of the borgs but didn't realize how handy they could be until I saw the video. Pretty cool
