Working in a small shop creates challenges to “max out” space. My shop http://lumberjocks.com/NickyP/workshop is based on things being space-saving & mobile. I try to construct thing that (1) max out their use and (2) fit in specific locations—this clamp rack was built based on these principles.
This clamp rack sits on a 23” round platform with six casters for stability and has proven to be very stable. The various clamp heights are specific to fit 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, & 48 inch clamps. The top storage has proven to be invaluable, holding many necessary clamping items (clamping squares, strap clamps, angle clamps, face clamps, glues & glue brushes, spacer blocks, etc.) I sandwiched a 3/4” piece of EMT above the storage for spring clamps & C-clamps while adding a couple of slats for a dozen 6” quick-clamps & some 1” spring clamps.
I love the size of the clamp rack as it takes up so little space and follows you around the workshop. There are over 60 clamps on it with room for more. You can view where it’s stored in the shop on my link above.
