So, Harbor Freight just opened up 10 minutes from my house and I have been buying clamps. I built this rack so that i could reconfigure it as i purchased more clamps and in different sizes.

I am planning on rebuilding the mobile base. I hacked this one together fairly quickly using casters from a $7.99 dolly.

There are more clamps hanging on the back side.

I think I spent more money on the rack than i did on the clamps.

I like the cart, I need to make one
Yeah, I like HF clamps except for the ones with orange handles, they break the first time I use them.
The other ones are good.

Nice rack. Do you find it a bit top heavy and need of some ballast at the bottom? I’m in need of a good clamp rack so am looking at different options. Thanks for the post.

Good idea! Got it on the to-do list. I have had good luck, so far, with HF clamps. I like the 12 inch ones on sale for $1.99 with coupon. Have eight, 6 of the 48 inch ones with 20% off coupon. I’m cheap!

@David – It is a little top heavy, but I don’t race it around the basement, so there is really no danger.

@Knothead62—I think i have 12 of the 1.99 clamps. The girls at my local HF don’t mind if i use multiple copied 20% off coupons. I just make them ring me up 10 times in a row. I’m cheap too when it comes to HF. I refuse to buy anything from there without a coupon—even if it is already on sale. I am also at the point now where my wife wont let me go there more than once a week.

That (tippy) was my initial thought, too, but … your answer cracked me up.

a) Nice job !

b) Should you change your mind …. I’d like to basement race you, clamp rack against clamp rack, for … say … $20. Mine’s a real go-er ;-)

Mike…be sure to inspect Neil’s rack first, maybe a nitros bottle hid underneath…..lol
Nice job on the rack, have several HF clamps. Good deal for the money.
