Hi Gang
I had a student ask how I stored my pipe clamps and I showed them what I’ve been using for some time,this made me think that some of you might want the same info. This is not my design I think it’s from “American Woodworker Magazine ”.

I still need more of these holders.

That’s just that wall,I think my son counted a while back an came up with about 200 all together. I think the “you can’t have to many clamps” thing is true, except when you have to find room to store them :))

Looks great Jim. I am waiting for someone to write a book on different clamping methods. It would sure be an interesting read!

That’s one subject I cover in my class but I don’t know that there’s enough variations I know of to write a book on.

Great idea! If I didn’t live in IN, I’d love to take one of your classes – then again, I have relatives in WA state…......

Finally, A solution that looks like it would really work. I’ve looked everywhere for ideas for a pipe rack that wouldn’t endanger life, limb, or whatever was under it by accidentally bumping it I know what I’m going to be building tonight, thanks especially for the pic with the dimensions spelled out. Only big difference is I’m going to paint mine so they look sharp.

Even with 200 clamps I’ve run out before. It seems like I saw some one LJs that did curved stairs that had 10 times more clamps than I o.

Not quite 10 times the amount…..between hand clamps, bar clamps and pipe clamps (the majority of which are hand clamps)...maaayyybe….1200?
Over the last 20 years, we’ve seen probably another 1000 broken, lost, or outright stolen.

Jim, great idea, thanks for sharing it. I’ve run out of vertical wall space in my shop so I don’t think I will get up to 200 clamps! Any ideas for storing them from the ceiling?

Nice and simple. Almost like a Pez dispenser for clamps. Thanks for posting.
