Rockwell JawHorse RK9000

The tool addict in me made me do it. I've had a curiosity about these saw horses with jaws since they came out, but wasn't sure enough that I needed one at the price they go for. Well today a used one showed up locally, so I did some checking around on the net to see if it was a good model, and a good price. What I found was that Rockwell for now has  parts, but you have to contact them to see if they have what you want, you can't just lookup parts yourself. I asked them if they have the rubber pads for the jaws and was told yes, but in my opinion the set is very pricey for what they are. I did end up buying the used JawHorse which by the way, the rubber pads were in great condition. Now I'll see how often this thing gets used.

Keep us posted. I've seen a few on CL for a decent price...unfortunately they weren't close enough to make it a good purchase once gas/time was factored.

Still think I would like one too...I'll keep watching...might be a purchase sometime when Memard's has their 11% Rebate Sales. They used to carry them...IDK anymore.

Picture? Is that like the B&D Workmate?

These are two pictures that the seller posted. I can take some pictures too if someone needs a better look at something about the machine. It's feels heavier then I imagined it was going to be. I'm happy so far.

That doesn't look like it had ever been used??? I'd say you did good.

How are the rubber pads fastened to the jaws? Could you make some interchangeable hardwood jaws to use either with or in place of the rubber pads? Might help to extend the life although that may not be a concern if it's not used/abused on a job-site.

Right now I'm not sure how the jaw faces are attached to the jaws. There are holes in them that line up with the holes in the jaw, but no bolts in them. I did look at the parts schematic in Rockwell's website and they show bolts, but don't give the size. For now the jaw faces seem to stay on, so I'm not going to open that can of worms yet. Hardwood jaw faces I would think would be a option, I also have thought of using white poly chopping block material that I have, or even some thick rubber belting, or mud flap material.

Yeah, hadn't thought of that, but that would be a good option too. I've picked up a few of those cutting boards at Wally World and Dollar Tree to cut & make runners for sleds and such. That probably would be even better than hardwood jaws for most applications especially if one side has the rough, alligator type surface. Pieces of 3/4" thick Baltic Birch would work nicely too.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
