The heavy weight champ of pipe-clamp racks

Sturdy steel rods won't bend or break By building this pipe-clamp rack (it takes no time at all), you can store dozens of clamps in a small space. You'll need some 2x4 stock, 1/2" steel rod, 3 1/2" lag screws, and washers. Dril 1/2" holes at 5 degrees upward angle through the 2x4 where shown. Then, attach the 2x4 to your wall with the lag screws. Cut your steel rod and chamfer the ends (for safety) with a file or bench grinder. Drive the rods into the holes in the 2x4, and hang your clamps.
