Hey, guys! I built the Ultimate Clamp Rack for JET & Powermatic Woodworking. I live in Nashville and the JET/Powermatic training facility is just 30 minutes east in Lavergne, TN. I made this clamp rack to hold 36 JET parallel clamps for their shop and it only takes up 43” of wall space. The whole thing is made from baltic birch 3/4” ply. I just wish I had those 36 clamps in my shop!

If you want to see a video of how I built it and get a sneak peak of the JET/Powermatic Training Facility, you can check it out here: https://youtu.be/gcuvGe7Ghzw

Thanks!
Brad

That holds a ton of clamps (literally)!

Great space saving approach.

This is a very nice clamp rack and certainly a very efficient one. It stores a lot of clamps in a small space and the clamps are easily removed for quick use. You did a fine job on this rack.

Excellent. I will be making one soon.
Great tip in the video to show how the center board can be narrower to hold pipe claps. I have a few of them so I will be doing that as well.

Nice – I need something like that but I’m running out of wall space. Next on my list is something similar for all my F clamps
