My take on clamp storage
#11
  
Just had to move all these and not quite done. But french cleats and some simple brackets using shop scraps and dowel stock.

Let the one-upmanship start!
I have found how much a boat is used is inversely related to how much it weighs.

       Here's what I've done. I'm still having trouble with the bar clamps vibrating off even after I've added some wedges along the bottoms.

This is what I did, similar to Jim’s.

Mine was lazier. A 2x6 mounted between two of the pole barn poles and a couple of the Rockler clamp racks for parallel clamps. I stuck an eye bolt between each rack and I run a peice of conduit through them to keep them from falling off for any reason since they are above my miter saw table.

That is why you turn them sideways and stack them.  You put the dowels on an slight angle and if needed you can add a small tab, such as a large washer on the end of the dowel.

for my kbody's I screwed these to the studs:

Everbilt 20 in. x 13 in. White Heavy-Duty Shelf Bracket-14825 - The Home Depot

and set the clamps over them.

Holds a bunch each.    use a different bracket for each length of kbody.

Ya'll turn those k bodies over....head down, weight down. Won't vibrate off that way.

Over 500 clamps here. Pics on other puter.

Steve, please post pics when you can.  I have some clamps I need to build racks for.
