Topic tags/keywords: clamp clamp storage

I store clamps using cheap angle brackets from hardware stores. There seemed to be two types of arms, I made sure to get the beefier ones. The bracket supports are screwed (well) into the studs. These have not given me any problems over 25+ years. The down side is that clamps aren’t nicely space and it doesn’t look real pretty.

I store longer pipe clamps above everything out of the way.

I store smaller clamps on a rolling metro cart that has also collected table saw and router stuff. I was able to get the cart from a surplus sale at work for $10 or $15 dollars. I thought I’d move the cart to the work when I had a glue up, but I haven’t done that much for some reason. I still walk to the cart and take the clamps to the work (for some unknown reason).

Not new ideas by any means but they’re inexpensive and don’t take up a lot of floor space in the garage/shop.

a very fine example that a person can never have enough clamps !!!
