Default Too Many Clamps!

Hmmm...I guess you can have too many clamps!

My poor homemade drawer is stuffed to the brim. I may blow a tire any day now!

I have extra storage space for clamps, just send them up my way and I'll hang on to them for you....

There's no such thing as too many clamps. Your drawer just shrunk a little, so all you gotta do is make a bigger one. Problem solved.

Yep. Cragars!!

Bryan, they are made from 1/2 inch plywood cut with a 5 inch hole saw. I built the drawers using whatever I could find in the shop. Some sides are 3/4 inch, some are 1/2 inch, even used some pallet boards!

I was able to make good use of some wasted space.

Great idea for using "lost" space, Mike. Clever.

That is NOT "too many" clamps. I have about three times that number.

Don't worry. I have many more. But I doubt I will buy any more. I'm out of room.
