OVERVIEW

The JackRabbit® coil-fed joint assembly machine is the fastest, most efficient way to produce multiple jack trusses. Works with most production materials: hardwoods, softwoods, plywood, OSB, and high-density plastics. 

  • No cutting or nailing
  • The production table slides in and out to allow you to accurately line up your truss components with ease.
Grooved and painted guidelines reduce jigging times significantly.
