    Another great build.
    Pliers, screwdrivers, combination wrenches, grinders, and C" clamps all need to have their own rack to hang from
    I like having my angle grinders on the wall as well
    But pliers will clutter up a tool box drawer worse than just about anything else the one you need is always on the bottom of the pile and every one of them above it will decide to open the handles when you try to close or open the drawer
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Thanks Frank.

    Yep, that was what i used so far. Never found the one i needed.

    PS. End parts are easier to make using angle iron. I just didn't had suitable sized available, so i used what i had.

    Tuomas many of us could or should write books on using what we had. In a way we all are doing just that each and every time we post our creations on these forum's

    Very nice.

    I've got a similar arrangement on the side of my welder/plasma cart for c-clamps and vise grips. Another like it on my grinder cart for angle grinders (hook arbor behind wheel over over top bar). Very handy as a general idea.

    Thanks. Yep, same idea can be used in many different tools.

    I made this for clamps.
    Diy 20 ton hydraulic bench top press

    I like to have couple different clamps always near.
    Usually you need one " fast ", then its good to have couple near you.

    Other clamps i keep in drawer. When i need many, that's usually predictable, and i can take them near before i start building.

    I have an old bicycle wheel screwed to a rafter over my bench with F-clamps and spring clamps hanging from it. Nearby but out of the way. Wall mounted plier rack-clamps.jpg

    If I"m not lazy and hang all the heavy ones on one side it turns quite easily to get at the various ones as needed.

    Thanks for another great post!

    As for your materials, when I first looked I literally thought you had drilled holes in repurposed machine tool door handles. I suspect that there are lots of ways to accomplish the same results. A guy might even use wood��

    By the way, what you are able to create with an angle grinder is inspirational.
