    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 ....

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