The never ending search to make a fixed space larger, or at least more efficient. Alternating between fine(er) woodworking and shop projects. The mobile clamp rack is from April Wilkerson which she got from Infinity Tools design.

Storage and organization are wonderful, if you put stuff away. My major shop fault is I don’t do that very well. That clamp rack that comes to where you are clamping is like found $$$$$$$$ though. Back when, I used to jog a few miles a day to the “clamp wall rack” grabbing clamps to bring to some distant place to actually use them on a project.

Today my jogger parts are on life support, so I’d be slowly shuffling for point to point, had it not been that I swapped to a rolling clamp rack a long time ago. You will like that, and I must say back when I made mine the cavemen who had made them before me thought some triangular shaped thing was the answer, so of course that is what I have. You can get a LOT more clamps on yours than I can, so it looks like your looking around to find the perfect rack, was time well spent.

Storage and organization, is that a comedy team?

April Wilkerson’s clamp rack may fit in my garage.

Just like clamps, you can never have enough storage and, if you have enough storage then you will get organization and I have little of each as my shop is in my garage and part of the garage is miscellaneous storage because the monthly costs of off site storage has gone through the roof.

I try and try but make little headway and you are way ahead of me!
