Good Day LJs,
With limited wall space, I built this roll-around clamp rack for my garage shop.
Using scrap plywood, I assembled the box frame using pocket hole joinery.
The top (photo #2) slots were cut on the table saw, final dimensions are 3/8” wide by 2” deep, spaced ~1 3/8” apart.
I installed a 2” wide retaining rail (photo #3) along the bottom that keeps the clamp heads in place; it makes returning the clamps a snap….just put the head of the clamp over the rail and put the bar in the slot.
Outrigger boards are installed at the each end of the fram bottom, perpendicular to the box frame, and casters were added for easy movement around the shop.
What I like most about this arrangement is that I don’t have to screw the clamp closed to store it; gravity does the work for me.
