Clamp Rack

So the workbench urethane finish is hard enough to load the clamp rack. Heres the leg vise side, loaded up.


With the outboard support slid to the other side, no interference.


Here is the moxon vise side. I have another 50 lb. box of 4 and 6 inch C and F clamps (somewhere, ha ha) which will load up the remaining 6' of clamping edge.


The bottom tray contains 26 F bar clamps from 1 1/2 ft. up to 2 1/2 ft. Of course I have a large number of larger F bar clamps and pipe clamps. These will be going into a rack in the garage/workshop, where they will be used the most, for larger projects. For larger frame glue-ups the bench end vises and dogs will do a good job of that. It sure is heavy, throwing my weight against the end, it was all I could do to slide it into place.

So that brings me up to date. For my next projects I am going to be outside for a couple of construction projects for the next two months. I don't plan on documenting them but I'll try to get some before and after pictures.

Little Update

Found that box of C clamps, installed on rack and I still got 2' left. I still have a dozen C clamps in various sizes in my welding area but this organizes all my clamps under 2 1/2 ft. with room to spare. Here's one more picture, the bench now weighs 600 lbs if it weighs an once, can,t lift one end , it feels like it is bolted to the floor.
