This is my second version of the Jet Parallel Clamp rack I’ve made, the first one was built on the fly just to get them off the ground at the time. It worked ok, but I went agains’t my own philosophy, I didn’t think 4 steps ahead or plan anything out. Ultimately costing me time and money because I ended up re-building it with this one, the RIGHT way this time.

This design is not mine, it’s been used by a couple different people online, however its the most efficient way to store your clamps and it gives you another shelf in doing so, for whatever you want to use it for. Mine model holds 25 clamps, I know, an odd number, but Jet sent me an extra 24” clamp due to the one I order not working correctly.

Made with 1/2” Baltic Birch. The main part is dadoed in and I added another 1/2” piece of ply below to make it almost an inch in thickness to make it little stronger, she’s pretty strong.

Hope you enjoy.

Great idea. I’m currently using an old expandable show curtain rod. Tacky, but useful. ;) BTW, Love the flag!

Looks great, can you tell me how you made the cutouts for the clamps? Want to build one and see that as the most time consuming part…thanks

I used a miter gauge and a dado blade, make the cut, then moved it over the correct distance, then repeat until you get the amount of slots cut.

Good Luck.
