I see alot of forums about clamp storage but not much about clamps themselves. The old saying “can’t have too many clamps” is true. the real issue is the cost of clamps. One could wrap up $100’s or even $1000’s before you realize it. I’ve wonder who out there has a good set of clamps. For example, I bought 10 pipe clamps and then bought fifteen 5’ pipes, 10 1’ pipes. I cut 5 of the 5’ pipes in half and I store all al them in one storage unit. I now can make clamp variations of 5’, 2-1/2’, or 1’ clamps. If I need some short clamps it takes only a couple of minutes to assemble them. When done, I take them apart and store the pipes separate from the clamp pieces. This gives me thirty clamp variations with only 10 clamps bought. I also bought pipe connectors so I can join 2 pipes to make even long one. I have some quick clamps and F clamps also, but I use my pipe clamps the most. I am now looking for ideas of maybe shop made clamps or clamp systems.
