I finally got round to building myself this mobil clamp rack. Just a bit of 3/4 plywood, and wheels that I had layin around.
Assembled with my Kreg jig and screws, that’s it. It is very sturdy. Screw spacing is about every 6”
The base is only 23×23, middle is 15, sides are 18, and 72” tall. A few pieces of 2×4 for hanging the bar clamps, and viola. This is nice because you can move it around and everything is at your reach.

I am going to be in need of some kind of rack, and since I need to make most stuff mobile in my small shop, that looks like a great idea. I particularly like the small footprint, which is important to me. Is it still reasonably stable?

Thanks, gonna favorite this to look back at.

wow….. I better leave the Guinness alone.
I had something written on here for Jim, and it disappeared when I went to edit it…
anyway, I think it was something like this: it is very stable, and it moves nicely across my smooth garage floor because all 4 wheels rotate 360. and if you go to my shop pics, the 2nd to last pic shows how I used to have my clamps.

Thanks. It is not the first next project in a row but not too far down the list since I have some clamps leaning against the wall because of lack of storage for them. After I finish my minibench, and then dust collection on my TS, which is partly done, I am going to break for some fun stuff. Then get back to the shop stuff. I think I have enuf plywood and wheels to do the job as well. And a Kreg jig.

On call this weekend, but slipped in a little shop time. Today had some work at the hospital, but tomorrow is a day off for recovery. 66 deg F, 18.9 deg C, at 1400 hrs, clear blue sky with light winds. Pretty.
