Worst shop accident of all times!


I knocked a plastic box off the work bench, it contained one hundred each,
2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm lock nuts, 2mm, 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm flat washers.
All in stainless. I have been on the floor for about an hour with a flash light.

Pity SS is not magnetic?

You mean you could actually see the floor ?

Not much of a builder if it isn't deep enough in dust and balsa shaving to lose a complete model in, let alone a few nuts

You actually think Kimber knows how to run a vacuum cleaner?
I bet she makes Brad do it.



And yes we all know of this evil temptress, blasting newbies with their 100 mph capable EDF's. And what of this Brad? Where is he? Is he just a figment of her twisted mind. She talks of him, yet has anyone ever seen him, or has he ever posted? And who in their right mind has a hat for an avatar?

Bring back the old avatar Kimber.


p.s. Kimber a flashlight, just like a magnet won't pick up stainless steel items, you'll need to use your fingers to do that.

I can get away with this as her ignore list is full so she'll have to read it.

There's a 6 month waiting period before finding those little bits.
This period can be accelerated by placing an order for replacements... and waiting for them to be delivered.

Furthermore, the little stuff shall not be found until something else tiny has been lost.

Too bad they're not just steel, but you could still try a strong magnet, as many times what's advertised as "stainless" barely meets those criteria.

Generally we stop and find dropped items, as we need them at the time. How ever,
I did find several #1 button screws and a couple 2mm brass nuts. One very small
o-ring?
Now I need to sit down and sort it all back in the box. I try to keep the parts on one
table and build on the other, but this time..................

A few of the 2mm nuts are magnetic, I think they are some we had and put in the box.
The rest came from Microfasteners and are high quality.

I found them in the hall and in the closet and in the folds of the chair. I am going to move
things and sweep later.

Which way is up?
I feel your pain!

Brings back memories (bad though they are.....) of a flat divided box I have in the shop for various fasteners etc. Had the lid down but didn't fasten the top latches....yes....picked it up thinking was good to go and the lid flopped open.............

Now the transparent lid has the message "latched when closed" in nice big magic marker letters.......and so far, that's worked.. :-)

My wife found the T pin I dropped on the carpet, but that was with her bare foot, tip of pin went straight in to her toe. I didn't realise she could scream that loud and for so long!

That you are really bad, ,,, or really good??

It worked out for the best, while I had everything out from under the tables, we
are putting down a new piece of carpet and replacing some floor tiles that got
damaged because the carpet wore through. We had indoor outdoor and it doesn't
hold up to the casters on the desk chair very well. got some better carpet this time.
