    I can’t decide whether to give this 3 stars or 4. I’ve only unpacked it today, so I’m feeling generous giving it 4 stars. If you haven’t already done so, read the reviews on the RK9033. It’s every bit the same as far as I can tell, save for one difference. The micro adjust feature for the height. Imagine the cheap handcrank mechanism found on inexpensive tripods…that’s essentially what it is. My intention was to use this for work support when working with the table saw or the miter saw. That micro adjust makes set up so much simpler. Three legs is also ideal if you don’t want to worry about having a work support that rocks around.

    The top clamp doesn’t seem very substantial. I think the reviews on the RK9033 probably apply here as well. Keep your stock greater than 1″ and it will support it fine as long as you’re not expecting the strength of a true fixed clamp. The name “jawstand” is overstating it’s utility a bit.

    Unfortunately it’s manufacturing origins shines through. Plastic parts are used on each one of the four clamping mechanisms (plastic and clamps do not mix). I’m not sure how long this will last, but for Harry-Homeowner, tighten those knobs down judiciously and I suspect you’ll get decent life out of it (and if not, register the product when it arrives and there is a 5 year warranty on it). For the working pro, I really question whether this will make it to the end of the month. The metal parts are thin stamped metal…no better or worse than you’d find elsewhere for <$100. I wouldn’t want to put 220 lbs (their stated max capacity) on it, but I’m sure it will hold 50 lbs adequately. I’ll update after a few months of use.

    Very Useful Features, But Not Perfect, July 10, 2015
    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Rockwell RK9034 JawStand XP Work Support Stand (Tools & Home Improvement)
    The good:
    Stronger than your typical work stand. Nice features like a built-in height guide, height adjustment crank, and clamping and tilting head.

    My favorite of these is the fine-tuning height adjustment crank. Trying to get your material supports to the correct height is a pain (like the rollers/supports on a miter saw stand). Setting the height for stands usually means guessing, checking, then re-adjusting the height until it is close enough. With this stand you can get it close with the main height adjustment and then turn the crank to get the final, exact adjustment.

    The bad:
    The clamp and the “locking” knob for the tilting head don’t hold particularly great. But they will likely work for most applications.

    The height markers on the side of the stand seem to be off by an inch. One would think that with the fine-tuning height adjustment set at zero offset, the heights marked on the side would be to the top of the stand, but they seem to give a reading off by an inch. I won’t rule out the possibility I misinterpreted something or took a bad measurement, but I haven’t figured out what went wrong yet.

    I was looking for a work support stand to help support material like 4×8 sheets of plywood or extra long dimensional lumber on my table saw, miter saw, et cetera. They have dedicated 3-in-1 stands for this, but most of them seem to have poor reviews. So I went with the approach of getting a Rockwell RK9034 JawStand XP and combining it with a scrap piece of 2×4 and some roller bearings. It was a little more expensive the buying the 3-in-1 stands, but the end result is a much sturdier and more versatile tool system.

    An extra hand of a stand but not much more, December 7, 2014

    Jif (Philly area, PA) –

    This review is from: Rockwell RK9034 JawStand XP Work Support Stand (Tools & Home Improvement)
    Rockwell RK9034 Jawstand XP Work Support Stand – Not as handy as I had hoped it would be, but the biggest surprise (and weakness, IMO) is the small and limited clamp pad itself. I’ve only used this a few times for holding various pieces of wood and was concerned about applying too much torque to the clamp and clamp handle (no need for stripping the threads or breaking the handle – let’s not crush it to death, just hold firmly, please). I finally had a project that this stand was supposedly made for – holding a painted door while air drying. I would not recommend the stand for rougher or heavier work.

    I am preparing an exterior insulated door in which I will eventually cut a hole for a dog door. I sprayed the door to protect it and wanted the door to dry vertically instead of laying down. For holding the door in this position with the door placed sideways and up on a couple of sawhorse supports, it worked out fine. I couldn’t fit anything wider than this exterior door inside the clamp jaw – the sides of the jaw head and the clamp won’t hold anything thicker. (1 3/4 – 1 7/8 range)

    The stand couldn’t suspend the door off the floor while clamped to one of the door’s vertical sides without looking like it would tip over, so a heavier door needs to be supported from the bottom as well. Again, I am working with an exterior door, and not an interior hollow-core door. I had raised the clamp pole as high as it would go. I wish the stand could raise the clamp to a higher reach – 60″ or 72″ instead of the 40″-ish it has now. I wouldn’t want to use this for holding the door while I was spray painting as I’m afraid the clamp and level bubble would be a mess when done (even if covering both, which would be a pain).

    In the critical reviews I’ve read here, the clamp seems to cause the most concerns so I took several pictures to help others see what it looks like. The clamp is only about 1.5-2″ square (didn’t measure it – see pics) so the entire side of the jaw head is NOT used to perform the actual clamping. Instead, the frame sides are welded together with tubes in between which forms the opening slot. This somewhat guide the material into place for the clamp. The sides of the head unit are NOT adjustable inwards or outwards, but the entire head/clamping unit pivots from horizontal to on end at 90-deg. Again, the only piece actually holding the material is a little steel foot with rubber pad on it that measures about 1.5- 2″ sq. It does put up a good squeeze to hold things in place, but it is more or less used to keep something in position and not support a large workpiece such as trying to hold an exterior door suspended entirely by this stand. The examples on the website and commercial show this stand holding up a 2×4 as a vertical or horizontal prop while another piece is being secured or worked on. Ok, that’s fine, but it should and does a little more than just that.

    The Jawstand XP Work Support stand is just not made for heavy holding. The frame and legs are of decent construction. As my pictures show, though, the handles and knobs are made of plastic. It holds up for home use if you’re not trying to crush things to death (why do guys always try to measure it by how much they can crush things?) This stand is more of an extra hand to gently, securely hold something in place while you apply finishing touches or work on the material in another spot. For that it works fine.

    I hope this review helps you in your decision whether to purchase … or not.
