Clamp Rack Model

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

I published the SketchUp file for my new clamp rack design and it is available for free download.   I plan on releasing the build video this Friday if all goes as planned, so please watch for it.

While I do offer an occasional new SketchUp file for free, please feel free to make donations if you feel that it helped you. (Go here, lower left side Donate).clamp_rack_gw

 

 

 

Clamp Rack is Up

Sunday, January 4th, 2015

I managed to make room for my new clamp rack by reorganizing my ‘Jigs Wall’.  The wall is starting to get a little crowded in this section of the shop.  I think the way that I’ve reorganized the wall will work just fine.

I filmed the entire build and I hope to have it edited and published within a few days.  Comments?

(UPDATE: I added partitions to the clamp rack to add more rigidity to the top shelf)

Clamp Rack Build

Sunday, January 4th, 2015

Organizing your shop is a great way to start the New Year.  To that end, I made a much needed clamp rack for my parallel clamps.  This was a much needed project that only took the good part of one day to build.  The clamp rack will serve double duty by holding my parallel clamp collection (with room to grow), and by serving as a storage shelf.

The only thing left to do is to find a place to hang it on the wall.  This is becoming harder and harder to do.
