Scored some clearance Bessy parallel and pipe clamps at Lowes. Have been on the look out after I broke nearly all my harbor freight (including a normally ok aluminum bar clamp that snapped the head right off.) A week later- the Lowes ad has the Irwin clamps buy one get one free! I went from nearly nothing to clamp with to what I consider an enviable set. Will have to do some reviews on the clamps when I get more time using them.
This clamp rack is what I came up with for my new set. 2×6 that I had started to plane down for a project, but didn’t use it. Drilled a series of holes- then used a square and jigsaw to cut the notches. A bit of glue, screws all around and a quick and stable clamp rack. Nothing groundbreaking I know- but if you need to get you clamps off your garage floor, this is an easy way to do it.
