The B4 Ball Positioner and the original JR-100 Universal Work Positioner are two outstanding Work Holders.

B4 Ball Positioner (JR-B4LC)
The B4 Ball Positioner is a substantial tool – plated steel, precisely engineered and well finished. It can be fixed to your work bench or made portable via an optional steel plated table clamp. The 2.5″ diameter ball rotates very smoothly a full 360 degrees.
“The circular clamping rings take a massive bite on the ball… this is a beautiful piece of equipment, made with a lot of care and attention. It is hefty, versatile and will serve well for a lifetime of hard use” – Chris Pye

Features:

  • Optional table clamp makes B4 and JR-100 portable from one workbench to another
  • All steel and plated – Super strong and heavy duty!
  • Clamp opens to 2 inches at bench and locks firmly with handle
  • A large comfortable handle allows the user to quickly lock and unlock the clamp
  • Tightens easily to a workbench
  • Weight: 10 pounds

Here is what Woodcarving Illustrated Magazine said about our B4 Work Positioners.

“At last, there is a completely flexible holder that puts the work exactly where the user wants it! Because it is fully 360 degrees rotatable (not 90 degrees as with other makes) it can be tightly locked in any position that’s comfortable for the operator while providing full access to the object.”

“The B4 allows processing above or below the workbench – with the user standing or seated. What’s more, the workplace can be positioned so that any side or surface is exposed without the need to disassemble. The swivel ball unit can be reversed onto the foot, which increases the mounting possibilities.”

“Any carver working three-dimensionally should have a work positioner, and this one is as good as they get!”

Jerry-Rig Universal Work Positioner (JR-100)
The “original” JR-100 is back! This product is the foundation of our holding devices and permits movement and rotation of your work. You don’t have to be a contortionist to work on hard to reach areas.

The robust construction of the Jerry-Rig JR-100 permits objects to remain locked in position even during severe shocks incurred while using power tools or a hand mallet. Designed originally for woodcarvers; this product has numerous additional applications including industrial and medical. Super Strong and Heavy Duty!

Features:

  • 12 notch positioning for forward and backward movement, plus sideway 360 degree rotation
  • Secures easily to a workbench
  • A large comfortable handle lets the user quickly lock and unlock the positioner to move into any of the 12 positions
  • Cast aluminum construction with a steel index lock
  • Fits all PanaVise™ products and custom Jerry-Rig USA fixtures
  • Holds a variety of optional fixtures and vises that slide in and out of the base
  • Optional steel table clamp (JR-TCSP) makes the JR-100 portable from one workbench to another
  • Weight: Approximately 6 pounds
