    Not so fancy clamp rack

    Hi all,

    I'm finishing up some shop renovations and was going to build a fancy clamp rack for the wall and found some metal shelf brackets in a box. Presto-new clamp rack in under an hour!

    We'll see if it passes the test of time, but they were in a pile on the floor after moving from my old shop. Passing along as a potential quick solution for other.

    Best,

    Good quick solution and makes use of a space that wouldn't be good for much else. Nice job!

    Looks good! I'm mostly using a clothes hanger pipe.

    looks like a good use of space.
    How do you like the Dubuque aluminum clamps vs the jorgensen parallel clamps?

    Thanks all. Justin, the answer is 'yes'- I like them both. I definitely use the jorgensen's more often but the Dubuques are growing on me-they are much lighter and handle well, especially for panels.

    Thats brilliant. I hate that Closet Maid stuff and have thrown out so much of it, for various reasons. Now I wish I had stored some of it away. I did hate it but it was pretty strong stuff.

    Would not have thought of it, but pretty smart. I like it.

    And now you won't be tripping over the box of metal shelf brackets.
