Flip-Up Pipe-Clamp Supports

Upright and ready to go when you need them, folded down and out of the way when you don't, these pipe-clamp supports add versatility to any workbench.

Pipe-Clamp Support

Fustrated with pipe-clamp holders tipping over as he worked, Paul Amberg came up with some ingenious flip-up supports for his workbench. A short piece of dowel slips into holes to keep the hinged holders in the up and down positions. For a 6'-long bench, cut out the pipe supports and stabilizers to the dimensions shown in the illustration; for a bench of a different size, adjust the dimensions to match what works best for you. Add the hardware and mount it to your benchtop. Now, drill dowel holes into the ends of the benchtop to line up with the holes in the stabilizers. To protect the workbench from glue drips, mount a roll of paper beneath the bench for easy access.

For my birthday, my daughter gave me some Bessey pipe clamps that have their own stand built in. I now use these more often than the pony clamps
