Topic tags/keywords: question

So, for those of you that have gone the slatwall (or whatever you want to call it) route for hanging stuff in your shop: what does your clamp rack solution look like? Pipe clamps, bar clamps, small clamps, large clamps—you have way, way, way more wall storage than the average Joe. How are you taking advantage of it in this regard? I ask because, in case it’s not obvious, I’ve gone the slatwall route (4×8 sheets running 8” from the ceiling all the way ‘round the shop), and I have ideas, but I’m sure I’m not the first one to tread this trail, and I’m certainly not the brightest…

Garbonsai,

Just saw your post about the slatwall clamp storage. Here is what I used when I had my shop in South Carolina. I will probably do the same thing in my new shop.

Slat wall was designed and sold as a store fixture product. I have looked at it , but it doesn’t appear (to me at least) to be a good choice for storing tools. The reason why I say is because tools are all sizes and shapes. I’ve always had to tailor make holders for each tool. Slat wall would be OK for small parts bins and modules, holding a set of screw drivers, or punches, all of a similar size. Peg board actually would be better for hanging irregular shaped tools. What you need for storing clamps is something you can clamp to. Just IMHO.

Have your say...
