A All it takes to hold handscrews is a simple wood block.
Over the last few years, I've purchased a number of "quick clamps" (the kind that have a pistol grip for one-handed use). The fixed jaw on these clamps is curved, and that's what gave me the idea for this hanger.
The curved jaw hooks over a lip on the front edge of the hanger, see photo. This lip is formed by gluing a narrow cleat onto a wide base piece.
To accept the bars of the clamps, you'll need to cut slots in the front edge of the hanger. Then just screw the hanger to the divider, see detail.
There's no question about it — I use my bar clamps more than any other clamps in the shop. That's why I like this hanger. It has a number of long slots that let me slip the clamps in or out in a matter of seconds, see photo.
The hanger consists of two parts: a mounting plate that attaches to the cart and a slotted support block that holds the heads of the clamps.
SUPPORT BLOCK The support block is made up of a hardwood core piece that's sandwiched between a hardboard top and bottom, see drawing.
Gluing up a layer cake like this strengthens the "fingers" that are formed when you cut the slots. This way, the narrow fingers won't break off when they get bumped or banged by one of the clamps.
It's hard to imagine a simpler way to hold handscrews than this T-shaped hanger, see photo.
The handscrews fit onto a thick, glued up support block, see drawing. It's sized to fit between the threaded rods on the handscrews. (I made the block to fit 10" handscrews.)
As with the bar clamp hanger, the support block is screwed to a hardwood mounting plate, see detail. (To strengthen the block, I used 3"-long screws.) Then simply screw the mounting plate to the divider.
