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 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.
