    Empty coffee cans. The original and ultimate storage container.
    I was a mechanic for 12 years, you can build up a lot of "extra" nuts and bolts in that time

    WTF you talking about? Got no jizz on my work bench. There is a container of hand cleaning towels

    Neighbor stopped by. He's a toolmaker. He's looking around the shop and says " ya need anything? how ya sitting on carbide inserts, drills and taps" If you need anything, let me know. I told him I'd like to get a 4 jaw for the KO Lee. He says, "I got one, I'll be right back".

    It's got the correct Brown and Sharpe #9 taper. What are the odds? He says they have an old KO Lee at work they never use. He's gonna be bringing more tooling soon. Also coming soon, a nice heavy duty radii toolholder for the lathe.
    He brought over a Herman Schmidt vise, very nice. he says" this stays separate from your stuff in my tool box". Really wish he would stop over more often.

    We have a "privately" owned Sears catalogue store here and if you carry a tool in there for warranty they hand you a business card with the instructions on one side and address on the other.
