A quick weekend project to get my clamps more organized. Nothing pretty, just some functional shop storage made from plywood cut-off’s.

The space where I store my clamps is a bit small and I had to fit everything between a door and my tool cabinet, allowing for the swing of the doors on both side. I was able to get most of my clamps onto this new rack, but I still have about 20 on another rack that just won’t fit.

Hmmm, I like that layout. Might have to borrow this idea…

Nice job of organising your clamps Tungie... however, if you can fit all your clamps into one photo and still keep it in focus…

YOU HAVEN’T GOT ENOUGH CLAMPS….

True enough, there is another rack with another 20 or so Jorgensen F clamps out of the photo…plus c clamps, strap clamps…..now that I think about it I’m not even close to getting all my clamp in one place!

Now I can afford to be critical… you have 5 more frames to post more pictures.

I’ve always went with the 2×2 so I can tighten the clamps onto it. However, I’ve had some issues getting them tight when they are tightly bunched together. Plus, it is hard to unclamp that one clamp in the middle that is needed for a project. I think I’ll be looking for some space in the new shop to make a clamp system like this where they hang loose.
