This is a proto type clamp rack that I will rebuild in my new shop slated for 2013.
I brought a bunch of Pine 1X4 and 1X6 material from Missouri to our new home in Surprise Az. ... well Surprise! as soon as the sun hit it it all warped and twisted. Seems to be a humidity thing. (I could have made some really nice propellers). Well being the Yankee that i am, I won’t throw it away, so I cut them up and used the Kregt jig, clamps, and a bunch of glue for assembly.
I have seen these racks on the net, and Stumpy Nubs made one, but I had no drawings or dimensions, so I set it up using the best SWAG engineering for 15 clamps to the tier. Habitat RE-Store had the hinges. I ended up with 45 clamps in the rack and a bunch of squeezy clamps on the sides of the rack and room for some C clamps along the bottom stretcher. Total cost … $5 for the hinges at the Re Store.
The next one I build for the permanent shop will not have the mistakes that this one has, but it was fun to do anyway. Oh, by the way, after I built this I did find that there are drawings available on Stumpy’s web site.
Thanks to all of you for being here.
