I have some empty spaces. I need some more clamps.

I did use a garbage can to move them out here, and just now built this to store them.

It is quick, dirty, and uses scrap pieces.

Nice rack and portable, too. I see that you have even left room for more clamps.

Hey lady, nice rack! Oop’s I meant mister.

Good use of scraps.

I went into a local woodworking supply store,and asked the sales person, “If I buy all the bessey clamos on this rack, can I have the rack too. He called his manager at home and asked. He said sold.

Unfortunately , shop space is at such a premium now, the rack is no longer used. Just takes up too much space.

Great idea! Just the sort of thing I’ve been looking for. I hope you don’t mind if I borrow the concept.

I got mine at Big Lots. $4 each for the short ones.

The 3/4” pipe clamps, I got them at Big Lots, I need them for a arched bridge. But some of them slip.

My Dad taught me to love tools and woodworking. For many years he and I went to the annual Pasadena (TX) woodworking show, and each of us would come home with one or two Jorgensen handscrews, of various sizes. He passed away a few years ago, and I have inherited his handscrews. I now have 18 of them, and they are a great pleasure to use, from #4/0 to #2. I think they need me to design and build a rack.

maybe that’s the goal I should have: buy 2 clamps at every wood show I attend :0

Nice rack Kirk! Do you have room for more on there?

Nice clamp rack. As Norm says, you can never have too many clamps. It certainly helps to have a place to put them. This is on my too doo leest.

No I don’t think there is such a thing as ‘clamp envie’.

But, ye who has the most clamps win.

great rack! I’m going to adopt the pipe clamp side setup and wall mount it for better safety! thanks for posting.
