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.

Hasn't seen enough use so far to justify the cost !

I know this portable work bench has gotten rave reviews , but I've had mine for several years now and I just haven't seemed to find many uses for it so far, over what I already have( Black and Decker Workmate). The jaws definitely grip tighter than my Workmate. I'm a woodworker ,cabinet and furniture maker , but I think this is designed more for the handyman, jack of all trades sort of person. It's a little pricey and a little on the heavy side , and had I not received it as a gift I probably wouldn't have bought it. This is not to say that I won't find more usage for it in the future though.

Jawhorse Rocks!

Better than a workhorse, no folding or dropping material. Need an extra hand, just get one of these! Has never let me down yet. Got mine from this store.
