« Part 18: Finally Took the Plunge (saw) Part 19 of Work(shop) in Progress series no next part

I just went over some old pics and noticed I never officially posted this one, so here it is.

This is how I have my bar clamps stored and organized (by length) at eye level so that even if one falls, it won’t do much damage (to me) as well as making it easy to reach and grab what is needed:

Nicely organized Sharon. You certainly have an ample supply of them. I can’t tell from the photo…what’s with the the two stray blue ones? Not enough room? Different length?

Lenny – yeah, there was no room. I have since (this picture was taken several years ago) added a couple more of those hangers and all the clamps (and more) now have a proper placement. good catch ;)

That looks great. Maybe it will inspire me to make some changes to my clamp storage.

Having the clamps coming “out” from the wall instead of across the wall seems like a smart way to save some wall space. Is that how you see it?? I have only seen a very few racks built “out” from the wall like you have done.
I don’t really see a down side unless you may know of one….......................

Lovely order.
Perhaps I also should make some clamp order.
Happy new year,

How many clamps do one need? That’s one nifty storage and it does seem more well organized than hanging them onto bars.
