I was at the local Tractor Supply Center today and saw a stack of jawhorse clones, but couldn’t find a price. It was close to the counter, so the clerk scanned it…...on sale for $29.95 (regularly $129). I had them scan again just to make sure and bought one (before they could correct whatever mistake they might have made). Couldn’t pass up a deal like that! You might check stores in your local area. It seems very sturdy and heavy duty, with a 300lb weight capacity and 36” reach. Seems like a good deal.

Thing is.. like one of the reviewers on the tractor supply site. What’s it good for? It’s like a sawhorse that holds a piece of wood by pressing a lever with your foot.

Or….it’s like a large vise that’s also a sawhorse? I suspect I will find some usefullness in either of those functions, but if not….it was only $30. What I think I will be using it for is with chainsaw carving. With a couple of jigs, I should be able to hold some of my carvings up higher and hopefully not strain my back as much bending over. I’ve seen a carving jig using an old bowling ball as a pivot, clamped in a jawhorse. I never could justify $180, $150, $125, or $80 that I’ve seen these things priced at, for my purposes. But it is a good height for me and I might find some handy ways to use it.
