Clamp Bucket

Lots of people store clamps in large racks and in rows along their wall.  I don’t have much wall space with easy access, and a big clamp rack is a no go.  I do have some buckets though!

Good, but it kind of tips over easily and could use higher sides.  Screwing the bottom of the bucket to a scrap of spare particle board keeps it from tipping.  I used small segments of pine to create risers for the second bucket.  Cutting out the bottom of the second bucket let the clamps go all the way to the bottom.

Better, now how does that happy little clamp sit in there?  Oh look, 20 friends decided to join.  Bessey and Jorgensen and Wood River Oh My!

A clamp bucket for less than 10 bucks.  I had a pile of 12, 18 and 24 inch clamps lying around that really needed some organization, and this has fit the bill.  It could be a little tough to find the exact length of clamp I want in the bucket without some trial an error.  That having been said, space is at such a premium in my shop, I am willing to sacrifice a little speed for space.
