Craftsman’s Job Vise is the newest clamping work stand to enter the market. Like the Ridgid and Triton look-alikes, the portable Job Vise features 7″ x 2″ clamping jaws that can deliver up to 1-ton of pressure. The work stand can support up to 220 lbs of weight, and folds up nice and neat for storage or transport.
One thing the Craftman version offers that the others don’t is a free jaw extension arm. The extension is more of a spacer, really, but it allows you to quickly increase the jaw capacity from 37.5″ to 43-55″.
If you ask us, the Rockwell Jawhorse Sheetmaster is the way to go if you need the extra capacity. Plus, its jaws are noticeably wider.
