    Cleat Wall Fixture - Bessey UniKlamps

    Well, Cynthia had to go and ask about clamps which led me to mention Bessey UniKlamps. I favor these for medium to small work (although I would not want to pay full price for them). I went looking for a pic to show Cynthia and stumbled onto a 6-pack deal on Amazon. They showed up in 2 days and I found I needed another clamp fixture for the cleat wall. I don't like things just laying around the shop. Clutter breeds misplaced items at best, and accidents at worst. None of us need any of either of those things. This will hold 18 of them (which is 2 more than I have) in 15" of wall.

    Great timing, My Jorgies hang on a sorry 2x4 mess, and after umpteen times of knocking others off reaching for one, I now have another project on the list...thanks!

    Glad to hear that I am not the only one who has knocked a clamp (or a few) down while getting ONE down.

    Now I don't feel totally stupid anymore...Just semi-stupid...or hanging space deprived. Take your pick.

    Enjoy,

    Looks great, Glenn. When I see all the cool things you do with your cleat system, it makes me wish I had some wall space to put some cleats in my shop. I like having all the cabinets, but I wish I also had some wall space to go with them.

    Nice.

    I have a few Besseys leaning up against a wall. I need to find a wall space and get things organized like that.

    I like that setup. if I ever get some time away from this darn computer, I might just reorganize my clamp rack to work that way...

    That's where a few of mine were. Just a few but, they always seemed to be between me and whatever I wanted to get to. When the new half a dozen showed up I hit my limit of patience. Some scrap ply and about an hours work took care of it. It worked out pretty well so I may have to make another one after the current project gets done.

    I think Glenn should find a couple of commercial sponsors, and do a show where Glenn walks into someones non pro shop and spends one day with a crew reorganizing and setting up the persons shop as neat as could be, with everything in its place, and all done for as inexpensive as possible.
    I think it would supply a world of ideas for 100's of thousands of weekend warriors who are knee deep in their messy garage or basement shops.

    Show or no show, Glenn is welcome to do that in my shop.
