And so the story continues, I had about 15 or 20 but needed to buy another dozen a week or so back, and I still need more.??????

Hmmm, and I always say I dont have enough. Maybe I should just be happy with what I do have? NAH !!!

I took this pic about 1.5 years ago when I was building a clamp rack and deciding what would go where. Today the upper rack is full, and there’s only 4 or 5 empty spots on the lower rack.

Got a chance to buy 12 cabinet masters for 200 last week. Problem is, I already have a rack full. Now have to build another rack to hold the clamps that won’t fit on my A frame rack.

I think I have around 80 F clamps, 25 pipe clamps, 4 48” Shopsmith panel clamps, 30 or 40 alligator spring clamps, (It sometimes drops drastically when significant other ‘borrows’ then doesn’t put them back where they belong).
Then there are 20 or so C clamps with a lot of different dimensions and probably 10 or 15 vise-grip type clamps.

There are also about 40 more F clamps and 4 pipe clamps in storage, but at the back of the shed, so I bought new ones instead of digging them out.

I still need a lot more, but I have to have a new shop to put them in.
