Rockwell JawHorse Plywood Jaw Accessory Attachment
Two weeks ago, we reviewed the JawHorse, Rockwell's one-stop workshop assistant, and last week we talked a bit about the log jaw attachment, and now, here's a little something about the Plywood Jaw attachment.
This one is simple enough. The standard Jawhorse jaws can open up to 37" wide, making them just barely able to handle a 36" door (something we've use it to hold quite a few times). But as wide as that is, it is still short of the magic 48" needed for sheet goods. The Plywood Jaw Accessory is a replacement part for the movable jaw that is longer. Exchanging the two shouldn't be any problem at all, the existing one just slides out and the new one slides in.
Rockwell makes mention of some stability issues when dealing with larger-sized items in the JawHorse, so if you're going to use the PlyWood attachment, it's worth it to think of those sorts of things. The last thing you want is a collapsing work bench.
The JawHorse Plywwod Accessory costs about $50, which feels a little pricey to us, but given the sturdiness of the JawHorse, it's likely a very well made item.
