    Clamp hanging rail

    This is a simple idea, but as you know, they are often the most useful :

    For storing my clamps, and not only clamps, I use a curtain rod, fixed on the ceiling of my shop.
    I can hang my clamps, spring clamps, and I also make various shapes of S or other kinds of hooks with iron wire. I like to hang my work pieces, while the finish is drying for instance.

    I must admit I am sometimes afraid, as this rail is just above my bench, to see a heavy clamp fall on a nice violin plate, innocently lying on the bench top ...
    So, maybe as a superstition, I put the heaviest clamps on the right and on the left, but not above my working area.
    No accident so far ....
    Cheers !

    Not as elaborate as some of your creations, Christophe, but as you said, very useful!
