If you just have a small amount of clamps, they store nicely in a 5gal bucket.

"I wouldn't push them in until it "bottoms out"---it's not necessary.
It's intended as a "plug", as the name implies, to close the hole.

Thank you Ken for the suggestions I was actually trying to decide between the K4 and the K5 but was leaning towards the K4, I've got the basic frame design for my work bench and I'm probably going to use metal diamond plate but the ladder for shelves idea I am definitely doing and also the fire hydrant water dispenser those were great ideas that I'll definitely use and I was going to put an emblem on it but was going to paint it but your idea to chisel it is a much better way to do it. Thank you for the ideas I just can't wait to be able to start making my bench at least I'll have a few months to design it while my arm heals.

I have built many kitchens and finally decided to buy the Foreman, because my latest kitchen consisted of 28 cabinets and I was over my hand hurting from all the drilling, moving the clamp etc., it seemed like a smart choice.
