Shoot, I could build a rack without even needing to weld it together, just clamp it.
I think I'll just attach about a 4 foot stick of angle arn from leg to leg on the far side of my welding table to hang them on.

Well, not counting the c-clamps.
It's really fairly painless when you're spending Wilton's money.

The important question is, have you named them yet. I think the one on the left looks like a William, then a Wallace, Wilma, Wilt, Willie, etc.

Andy, I rarely name simple tools, only more complex machines - usually things with motors.

But I did finally bolt a stick of angle iron to my bench & got all those clamps off the surface.
Nothing fancy but it does get them more out of the way.
The do stick out 2-3 inches but they're on the back side of the table, not where I usually work.
Maybe it will do but it's a start.

I usually hang my c-clamps on a bar that goes horizontal between two legs of my table. This way they are already open, so I don't have to screw them down, or open.
If you decide you want to name them, and yet follow your complex rules for your naming convention, then I think I can come up with a way to attach a rack and pinion and a gearmotor adjuster to one.

But Andy, c-clamps are so last year.
None of my cool friends even think of them anymore.

You are trying to confuse me, I thought you have that red three-phase clamp rack.
