Inspired by a project from the New Yankee Workshop, I created my version of a mobile clamp rack/assembly cart. I can move it to my assembly table. Not only does it store my clamps, but also my drivers, fasteners, glues, and room for a few other things that I might find that I need. The biggest thing, it keeps all of my clamps together without taking up wall space and I can bring it right to my work.

That’s an impressive array of clamps you have there. Good looking project too. Well done.

I clicked on this because I need ideas to expand my own clamp storage.

Were you having to store your clamps at different stages of closure to get them to fit at their former location? That’s what I’m doing now.

No I didn’t have to store them in different stages of closure, my situation was worse, I needed to store them in different locations. My short ones were in a drawer at my assembly table – which actually wasn’t bad. Spring clamps were on the side of the assembly table, medium size were on wall rack, and long ones were overhead. I am in the process of moving my shop from my basement to my garage, which gives me a lot more room, but not a lot of wall space. I am very happy to have them all together now.

No matter what size of shop we have, there will always be a need to find wall space for the clamps. This is just what I need in my 20’X40’ shop…but then I have been saying that for a couple years now. Thanks for sharing

Thanks for showing this. That is a great idea. I have clamps everywhere in my shop and now I have a fix.

Great job. I’m sure it will make life in the shop much better. I built mine last fall and love it

Great design and a very useful addition for every shop! I put more and more things on casters and I will keep your cart in mind.

With all of those nice clamps I bet you still don’t have enough. Nobody has enough clamps. However, you have certainly built a nice cart to hold them and it will be a great addition to your shop.
