Triton Superjaws

triton_superjaws.jpgIf you're looking for something that can clamp anything, you should check out Triton's Superjaws. Although known primarily for their routers (which are apparently some of the best on the market), Triton has a number of other unique tools in their catalog. After one look, it's obvious that Superjaws is one of them.

Superjaws is a giant clamp that is capable of opening to 36" and delivering about 2200 lbs of clamping pressure. The tool is made of corrosion-resistant powder-coated steel and the whole thing folds up to a fairly compact unit, making it nice and portable.

The coolest thing about the Superjaws is that the clamping is all done with a foot pedal, allowing you to keep both hands free for last minute adjustments. We recently made a chess board and the process of clamping the board strips together with standard pipe clamps ranged from 'tricky' to 'disaster.' With the Superjaws, the process would have been far, far easier.

Triton's Superjaws retails for about $160. The price and the nature of the functionality make it something that probably won't interest the occasional DIYer, but any serious woodworker or contractor might want to consider the usefulness of this tool.
