This compact easy-to-use work stand not only supports loads up to 220 lbs, but it can clamp work pieces up to 1-3/4 in. thick and raise them 41 in. off the ground. Another nice feature of this heavy-duty tripod based support is its ability to pivot 0 to 90°, and swivel 360°.
The JawStand comes fully assembled and ready to use out of the box. It only weighs 13.2 lbs and folds up for easy storage.
I’m a huge fan of any tool that makes it safer and easier to work by myself. Over the years I’ve become accustomed to rigging up all sorts of jigs, holders and benches to give myself an extra set of hands and keep the 10 fingers that I was born with. So tools like the Jawhorse and JawStand really get my attention.
I tested the JawStand several different ways to see how versatile and helpful it might be. One of the first tasks that I tested was using it to clamp a work piece that I wanted to sand.
Another useful application is setting up the JawStand as an outfeed support when cutting material on the table saw or router table. The top of the clamps are rounded over, hard plastic which provides a smooth surface to support your sheet goods as you feed them through the tool.
Finally I tested the JawStand with a door clamped in it. Hanging a door or changing hinges on a door by yourself is nearly impossible. The JawStand’s clamp can be rotated vertically 90 degrees which allows you to clamp vertical surfaces like the side of a door.
With the three legged design you can position the JawStand as shown and have it hold one side of the door while you work. For me this is a very nice feature for anyone that works alone installing doors. Depending on how heavy the door is the JawStand might not be able to fully support the door but it does provide that extra help you need to position the door and make adjustments.
I really like the Rockwell JawStand. Selling for just under $60 it’s a very well built, tough, versatile work stand.
Regardless of that minor recommendation I think the JawStand is a great tool. I’ve only had it a few weeks and it’s been used quite a few times for things that used to be a total pain by myself. If you’d like to own the JawStand you can purchase it at :
