Ridgid SuperClamp Portable Work Station

superclamp.jpgThe Rockwell JawHorse might be the most important item we have in the shop (we actually have two of them). Each time we're out there on a project, we're constantly shifting them around, using them to clamp things, prop things, hold things, and support things. Like one of our pals once said, "having one JawHorse is like having a helper. Having two JawHorses is like having five helpers." We're constantly amazed at just how useful the tool is.

So now, there's another option on the market, the Ridgid SuperClamp. The SuperClamp more closely resembles the Triton SuperJaws (the original clamping workstation), but as far as functionality goes, it's likely a wash between the three items.

Our guess is that aside from the aesthetic differences, there's probably not much that separates the two tools. Rockwell has made a number of attachments available (log jaws, plywood jaws, miter saw station, etc), which Ridgid hasn't done. But since Ridgid just released the tool, we expect to start seeing attachment pieces pretty soon.

The SuperClamp costs $159 which puts it a few sheckles below the JawHorse ($179)
