Clamp Storage Project - Part Two

Got to work some more on organizing the clamps in my shop. This week I built a rack for the quick (mini-bar) clamps, the spring clamps and the C Clamps. Freed up quite a bit of shelf space for me to cram over junk into. Last week I had posted the pipe clamp rack and fellow LJ and good guy PurpLev had suggested that I find some way to secure the clamps and I thought it was a fine idea. I included a pic of what I came up with using 1 1/2” nylon webbing and some cinches. Looking at the saw bench, looks like I need to put some effort into a few more organizational projects as well….lol

Marty- Me and Mrs. B will be heading down to New Orleans in October. There is a high probability we will pass right thru your neck of the woods….maybe she will left me stop by long enough to help you catch up. Either that or put you behind another six months…lol I understand the getting distracted part. I been wanting to build those racks for at least three months now.

Jim- Thanks, I need to do more of em. On your way to AZ, you should swing south and show me and Marty how a real woodworker gets it done.

While I agree with PurpLev about making the clamps secure (from falling) it looks like the buckles on the webbing would get to be a pain to use after a while. Wouldn’t bungee cords be easier?

Hey, at least you are DOING SOMETHING! I’m still trying to put a plan together to get a shop built here at the new house, so I’m certainly in NO POSITION to criticize someone else’s setups . :-)

Thanks Joe…. Bungee cords were my first choice as well but I was too cheap(or was it lazy??) to go look for them…lol All the ones I had on hand were too long. Thankfully, i dont use the long clamps too often so my frustrations should be kept to a minimum.
So how you enjoying the move so far? I am sure the big orange store in knoxsville is still reeling from your departure bud. One advantage I guess, seems the Atlanta area CL is massive so should be able to collect new goodies pretty quickly….space on the other hand…be hard to replace that billion square foot shop you had before…sigh
Stay safe down there bud.

Hey Buster, if you were in my shop all the clamps are laying on the work bench. They are much easier to get to that way LOL. Really, I used the back side of my shop door to hang the longer clamps since that space wasn’t used for anything else. Great organization buddy!!

The only problem with the ATL area CraigsListings is that it’s 3 or 4 hours away. Macon is 2 hours and so is Augusta, The closest CL listing is Statesboro and even that is an hour. Kite really is pretty “remote” country, but so far we like it.
I did find a job (driving a forklift in a warehouse) so that was a major load off my mind. Now if we could just get out from under the mortgage we have back in 10aSEE it’d be great!
