    A Vise-Grip and C-Clamp Rack

    I have been blessed with many Vise-Grips and C-clamps. Handy to use but not easy to access. They all went into a drawer which was hard to open due to its heavy contents. Sometimes a tool would shift and it was impossible to open the drawer without a lot of jiggling. Recently I finally addressed this annoyance by building the rack presented here.

    Very timely for me as I am about to build a rolling stand for my grinders, etc. I was thinking of incorporating this into it. I'll post when I've got it complete. Thanks!

    The vibration on moving the stand may cause the tools to fall off. You may need to add a lip around each adjustment screw. Then lift vice-grip slightly and pull out.

    I like how it works with open or closed vice grips. Nothing more annoying than having to crank them in just to hang them up.
