    Clamp racks...let's see what ya got.

    We all got them. Clamp racks, that is. I have had a couple I have not been happy with, but my wife was at a garage sale this past Sept. and came home all excited she bought me a clamp rack on wheels. She explained as best she could what it looked like. She already paid for it .....$5.00, I thought at that price it couldn't be much but I went to get it anyway.

    I was surprised! It is perfect for my needs, portable, square tubing on the main frame which works for pipe clamps to screw onto and then it has pipes welded off from that I use for my Jorgensens, Besseys and Irwins. Expanded metal on the bottom for my milk crate containing C-clamps and such.

    Plenty of room to add more in the future....and completely portable.

    Did I mention I Love my wife? I wonder what she'll find next.

    Tod, I saw one of those clamp racks like in your last two pics. Very nice! They were a door and drawer company making only raised panel doors. They had a lot of glue squeeze out that had dripped on the floor over time.

    2 questions. 1. what do you use to avoid glue on your floor and on the equiptment. and 2 is that a glue tray in the foreground of the last pic?

    steve, yup they drip ......bates boothcoat is the answer to keep from contaminating the clamps....i just use a spud hoe to chip up set glue from the floor.....concrete does have a purpose in life.......yup that`s a glue pot you see, makes gluing up panels quick-n-easy.....it actually takes longer to prep the stock than to glue up 40-50 panels.....tod

    Hmmmm.....

    I'm afraid that my little rack can't compare to some listed above. None-the-less, here it is!

    Small clamps are stored in boxes (by size) in th cabinet to the left of the rack. My small 'quick clamps' are on the legs of my workbench.

    Much better than mine, my clamps just lean against the wall right now.

    I do not like my set up very much because it is not mobile. A lot of walking and carrying of clamps when I need them. It is even worse when I need to put them all back. The reason that I do not have them on a movable rack is that I am out of room. No other option that I can think of.

    Here's my pathetic little rack. Basically 4 clamps each of several styles.

    I'm the odd man out on the idea of mobile clamp racks. I want my clamps to stay put - when I'm in the middle of a glue-up and find that I need one more clamp I sure don't want to have to try to find the rack
