AN INEXPENSIVE METHOD FOR CONSTRUCTING STORAGE RACKS FOR HANGING ARTIFACTS

DAVID LEE COLGLAZIER


ABSTRACT—An inexpensive method for constructing hanging storage racks uses common iron plumbing pipe, stainless steel hose clamps, welded wire fencing, and aluminum-magnesium alloy fittings. In the fittings, set screws hold the cut sections of pipe together and come in many different configurations for joining angles and pieces, as they are made for several pipe sizes. Rolled fence stock is held to the pipe framework with hose clamps. Assembling the components requires hand tools and some moderate labor for cutting and handling.
