Default Chain Rack

So made a new chain rack, since the old one is full. Used some cut offs of 2x2x1/8 angle, some 1/2" black schedule 40 pipe. clamped it all down on a welding table, welded one side with a 1/16" gap, flipped it over ground to the back side of the weld, finished welding and ground the welds flush. Drilled holes for five 3/8" bolts on 2' centers to match the aluminum channel on the inside of the van. Overall length is 8 1/2 feet. Cut eighteen pieces of 1/2" pipe for and welded them to one leg of the angle. No paint.

Had to add three 5/16" chain hooks for the missing ones and two 1/4" hooks that were missing also. Two 1/2" hooks are missing, but I was out of stock for those hooks. The was one 1/2 chain with three a weird 3 hook arrangement. Been off and on sprinkles today so will drag them another day in the gravel drive to get the rust off of a few.

Pics ain't working try to get them later.

Default Chain Rack

After you drag them to get the rust off, what will next step be to prevent them from rusting since they will be stored outside?

Or will you build a small roof to help keep water off them?

Nice rack, by the way. We need madam back with her awards!

Nice rack! you have a few more chains than I do. I really like the idea. most of mine live in one of the toolboxes on the dually flatbed because that is where they see the most use, but much easier to find the one you want and retrieve it from a rack like that.

Thanks. I have considered doing the roof thing. It s one of those things that I never seem to make the time to do. There were some junk chains, like pieces of snow chains and one that was over stretched and the links were binding so those go in the scrap barrel.
