Rockwell RK9000 Jawhorse
Compared to other portable workbenches, this is a horse of a different color—and the price reflects it. $178 buys the Jawhorse, a three-legged sawhorse with a foot-pedal-operated, 37"-capacity vise at one end. It’s built to withstand life on a jobsite. An optional split-table worksurface ($50) attaches to the vise jaws. (Jawhorse offers additional accessories as well.) The foot pedal provides clamping power in spades and lets you hold a workpiece with both hands while tightening the jaws. Release the foot pedal and the jaws lock in place. Flip a front-mounted lever to unlock them. The moderately sized bamboo table should prove more durable than an MDF surface and includes a hole to park the nose of your cordless drill. One gripe: The plastic dogs fit too tightly in the benchtop holes; we had to pry them out with a screwdriver. When the job finishes, the stand folds into a compact footprint with the legs locked below the upper beam. And while it’s heavier than traditional portable workbenches, a roller at one end glides over smooth surfaces for easy transport.

Love my Jawhorse.
I can quickly hold my work and/or throw an top on it for a quick table top. Very sturdy. A great tool.
