Jed Clamp-It… that is,


I don’t have floor space for a roll around clamp rack so I resort to a peg board for small clamps. Anywhere you can find some open wall space will work.

Also a pic of my often used hand tools.

Looks like my wall.

I don’t know if that was a compliment or an insult. :-)

Hi Bob,

These do come in handy. Like Charlie M I have an entire wall of pegboard (18’ floor to ceiling). It is a lot handier than drywall for storing tools.

Nice idea.

Great use of the walls. Nice storage.

Looks like you need more peg board. I see you use those handy plastic locks on your peg board hooks. Don’t you just hate it when you reach for a tool and the hooks come away with the tool.

I am curious. How often do you have to clean the dust off the tools? I thought of doing the same thing but worry about the extra cleaning time later.

I have a garage shop and an electric leaf blower. Once getting the big stuff up into my dust collector, I open the doors and take a minute or so to clean up with the leaf blower. I keep the shop pretty clean with this method.
