How do you store your steel flat bars? Currently I have some O1 tool steel in 36 inch lengths standing in a rack.  Seems a couple have bowed a little bit.  My space is very limited.  Would it be better on a shelf of some kind? Not sure where I could find that space. 

Thanks again for your help

That's concerning... I wouldn't have thought steel would bend on it's own and I keep mine standing up because of space as well. 

 

I'm extremely curious what the more experienced folks have to say: I'd hate to have to find "horizontal" storage, but I don't need everything bending.

I keep it vertical, leaning against the wall.  If you are concerned about it bending, bolt a length of large-diameter PVC pipe to the wall and stand the bars in that.
