Product Description

Product Description

Rockwell has reinvented the vise with the revolutionary and innovative Benchjaws. There is no more hassle trying to stabilize and clamp a work piece, and operate the vise spindle at the same time. The RK9006 Benchjaws is a hands-free bench vise and clamping station that makes holding and clamping way more efficient. Now with the Benchjaws, use both hands to stabilize the work piece, and use your foot to clamp it in the jaws, giving the precision you need to clamp the workpiece where you want and how you want. Like the very popular JawHorse, the Benchjaws has many functions, but less space is required. The Benchjaws can be left in the set-up position on a stable work table or bench, and is always ready to go. Mount the Benchjaws to the top of a workbench or work table for a versatile clamping station designed to get your project into a more convenient working position faster and easier. The RK9006 offers a huge clamping range of up to 16-Inch compared to regular bench vises. The all-steel construction provides rigidity and strength by supporting up to 220-Pound. Like the JawHorse, the Benchjaws can generate over a ton of clamping force-that's 2200-Pound of pressure. When mounted to the corner of a work bench, the Benchjaws can be rotated as the 2-position mount allows for a 180-Degree repositioning making it convenient to work on bulky or odd-shaped projects on the front of the workbench or on the corner. The Benchjaws also have added accessories (sold separately) to help fine tune your clamping to hold and accommodate larger pieces. The (RW9207) is an extended jaw that stretches the Benchjaws capacity to 24-Inch allowing for the capability to clamp larger pieces. The (RK9208) aligning jaw with clamping posts, is a multipurpose self-aligning clamp to help hold tapered and round objects. They are great for holding and clamping various odd-shaped projects that otherwise would need added shims to clamp in a regular vise.


Rockwell BenchJaws
The BenchJaws mounts on the corner or in the middle of your workbench to create a convenient hands-free workstation (view larger).

Rockwell’s RK9006 BenchJaws hands-free bench vise utilizes a foot pedal clamp in order to maximize your clamping efficiency without taking up a lot of space in your workshop or on the job site. By simply mounting the BenchJaws on either the corner of your workbench or in the middle of it, you can instantly start using both hands to stabilize materials and use your foot to clamp them in the jaws where you want them and how you want them. Accessories (sold separately) are available to further enhance the BenchJaws’s many applications. Enjoy the ability to use both hands to stabilize objects while painting furniture, reframing windowpanes, gluing woodworking projects, and more.

Forceful Functionality

The RK9006 easily attaches to the top of a bench or table and quickly becomes the go-to item for getting your project into a more convenient position for work. With a clamping range of up to 16 inches, the BenchJaws’s two-position mount permits 180-degree repositioning in order to get the best angle on bulky or oddly shaped materials (such as a dresser drawer or a bicycle). A 3/-8-inch-per-step clamp travel with the foot pedal allows you to adjust the clamping force to exactly match your needs, from delicate projects to heavy-duty tasks.

Even though the BenchJaws only weighs 22 pounds, it features all-steel construction for rigidity and strength. And strong it is: With a maximum load of 220 pounds and a maximum clamping force of more than one ton—2,200 pounds, to be exact—the BenchJaws is a simple but effective way to maximize your productivity when working on clamping projects in your workshop or on the job site. You can leave it in the set-up position so that it’s always ready to go, but it also effortlessly detaches from your workstation when necessary.

It works very well on my projects made from pallet wood.
Bob Perdue
The free sliding clamp makes adjusting the vise super quick and easy then one pump with your foot and a flip of the switch locks it in place.
Michael A. Parker
I like very much that it can be easily turned 90 degrees depending which way I want to attack my work.

I bought this instead of a remounting my old bench vise when I build a new workbench. It's wonderful. The video shows it all. It is simple to use, grips extremely well, and simple to put together and install.

The previous reviewer is right -- this does require a permanently affixed mounting bracket, but I see this as a positive thing -- unlike a permanently attached bench vise, this thing can be taken off the table. Sure the bracket is still there, but it only rises about 1/8th of an inch above flush with the table, so you can really work with your whole table when the benchjaw is taken off.

I love that it mounts it in both directions -- very handy to get just the right approach to your work. This thing is also very rugged -- I've only had it a few weeks, but I've used it a lot, and had zero problems. It even clamps very well when using only one side of the jaws.

My only tiny complaint is that there is a little too much give between the mounting bracket and the benchjaw so that it caused a little bit of rattling when I was using it. I fixed that by attaching some very small felt pads on top of the bracket, just to take up the "slack" between the two main pieces of the device (the bracket and the jaw).

This is so superior to any workbench vise I've used. You may still need a bench vise to do some of the crazy things we all do (like bending things back into shape, etc.), but for wood working and generally clamping onto things that you are working on and holding them very steady -- for drilling, filing, sanding, painting -- whatever, it's the best thing ever.

And you can take it off with the turn of a thumb screw and have (virtually) the entire square footage of your table available.

Like all Rockwell tools I've used it's very nice . . . but this one has some limitations and it could be redesigned much better. It's OK for some things but doesn't replace a woodworking vise ... although with some changes it could.

Mounted on a normal bench BenchJaw is way too high for comfortable use with say a piece of 8" stock clamped on edge (so you can work on or plane the upper edge), unless you want to stand on a stool. I considered building a custom bench to mount the BenchJaw lower, but the pedal has limited height adjustment so the floor gets in the way - bench has to be at least 34" in height. Notice in the video that the guy is tall and it's a pretty low bench so the working height problem is not really obvious in the video.

Needs redesign so it can be mounted lower so that the jaws are positioned more like a woodworking vise, with the top of the jaws at the same level as the bench top. This would involve a redesign of the product so the clamping mechanism is either below the benchtop or the tool is mounted to the end of the bench (rather than to the top of the bench) and the pedal would have to be much shorter.

The vise is heavy enough with something in it to make a typical workbench topheavy. If the vise could be mounted lower, the center of gravity would be lower and the bench might not have to be bolted to the floor, which is kind of a hassle.

For woodworking, having something on and above the surface of the bench (even if it's just a mounting plate with the vise removed) limits the usability of the bench. You don't want something breaking the flat work surface because it limits your ability to move things around and results in a non-flat work surface.

Jaws are pretty shallow, I believe because of the height problem.

It isn't real clear in the product description that this vice requires a flat, 90-degree corner for installation. Yes, you could clamp/bolt a piece of 3/4" plywood to your bench and attach this vice to the plywood but that sure kills the convenience factor of being able to quickly use this vice .... which is at least one reason why someone might buy a foot-operated device.
And once it's installed it kind of ruins your flat workbench top, as noted by others.
Based on the fact that my bench top has a front lip and even with a flat top the installation screws would hit the bench legs, I couldn't easily install this guy so I returned it. Amazon's good about that.
Amazon could prevent a lot of this type of return by including a PDF of the installation instructions on the product description page.

This is the hot set up! Not exactly one handed at first, but once you get the hang of it, it's very neat. Every one that comes in the shop, sees it and asks for a demo. It is especially nice when working on rifles, sharpening scissors or tools, holds a 2x4 for whatever, repair a chair, very handy, haven't used the other regular vice since.

The install instructions are a little un clear but after a couple of boo-boos it works great, choose a open location though,mi had to move it after I started using it so much, no more hollering for extra hands when doing stuff

Just like Rockwell's JawHorse, the jaw mechanism on the BenchJaw doesn't disappoint. It's the mounting system however, that could stand some improvement. Maybe it's just me, but I planned on only mounting this tool when I needed it, maybe using some sort of clamping system incorporated into the tool itself. But that's not how it works, and instead a metal corner angle needs to be permanently mounted somewhere and the tool mounts there only. So just be aware of that going in, and like I mentioned, otherwise the jaw itself is great.
