Greetings to all : I thought I might just throw this in for some serious consideration for those interested. In my early days of woodworking, I, like a lot of you out there in woodland, use the cheaper verson of the thin bar clamps, like Jorgonsons, Pony, etc. I built a cheap-o clamp rack to hang them on the wall out of the way. But a couple of years ago I started using the Bessey bar clamps and began to accumulate quite a few, along with some pipe clamps of various sizes. It was time for a new rack…...So I designed the rack system I have now, and as I added more clamps, had to “re-invent the wheel” so to speak. One thing I did before was cut the slots for the Besseys to hang with the handle to the inside next to the wall. This didn’t work for me at all.
So I took it down, tore it apart, and started over again. This time I cut the slots deeper, turned the clamp around where the handle was facing out, and re-mounted the whole system. Also made a new rack for my pipe clamps….. So much better. So…. I thought I would put them in a blog and you could take a look. And feel free to make any part of them or all of them for yourself if you want to. And if you have any questions, or need diminisions, just shoot me a PM. There are already 2 guys working on these racks now. Here they are:
