JawHorse Log Jaw Attachment
We like that Rockwell is thinking 'big picture' with the JawHorse (our review here). We established last week that it's a fantastic tool to have in the workshop, but how about out by the woodshed? Well, Rockwell is making sure that the tool is a success there too with the release of the Log Jaw Attachment.
It looks like the Log Jaws attach right to the existing ones and give the tool the ability to hold on to a log of up to 12" in diameter. There is also some sort of vise that folds out, allowing you to hold a chainsaw blade for sharpening. Add to that all the features already inherent in the JawHorse; the one ton of clamping force, the easy-to-use foot pedal, and the stable tri-pod legs and you've got something of a winner.
This looks like a great idea to anyone into carving (Arbortech Power Chisel and Mini-Grinder, anyone?) or if you're like us and you've got a wood stove and a penchant for scavenging fallen trees in the woods behind your house.
The Log Jaw Attachment costs about $40.

The JawHorse looks like a great product and I most likely is,but it is a Rip-Off the Great Australian Triton Super Jaws work Stand.
This is very poor form for Companies to Copy Inventions from other Manufactures.
I wonder if any Royalties are paid to the real Inventor of this Product Based here in Melbourne Australia.
This is the problem we have being the most Innovative Country in the world Australia.
