Very nice ! It looks a lot like what I might do if I had 91 clamps. Congrats.

Hi Tablesawed,
Very clean rack. If you have a place for everything, you can put everything in its place when done with a project and return the shop to an organized state. I love it. Thanks for sharing and you have a good selection of clamps!!

Nice dog in your home page photo!

That is an excellent storage system. Thanks for including your measurements in the Sketchup image. It took me all of 15 minutes to draw one up.

Looks great!
The only thing I would recommend is not stretching your spring clamps (the two orange ended ones spread apart) as you will find in time they won’t be as strong…unless that is what you are doing it for.

I found out the hard way.

I hang mine on a steel 3/8” rod, and they are closed…

All the Best!

Wonderful idea. The holders are very similar to the ones I made to hold my Besseys, but mine are fixed, not adjustable like yours. I can’t wait to make one like yours. Also will take into account Randy’s advise of the spring clamps. I guess I will get on Sketchup this evening and sketch that part out.

Love the rack and leaving room to grow is wise, as we all know how our clamp collection seems to multiply when the lights go out (at least that’s what I tell the Misses anyway !! ) Nice job and thanks for posting…...ROB

Great design. As your clamp colloction grows it will be easy to adjust.
