I never did sort these. They are still sitting in the container.

Oh that's nothing...someone or something (who will remain anonymous) here at our shop managed to knock over an entire wall rack of hardware - of course it was everything from 4-40 screws, nuts, washers, and other miscellaneous stuff, etc.. It was so bad I couldn't even get mad - just had to laugh!

If those are the worst you've seen consider yourself lucky...

PS, the pics below are AFTER a few hours of 'sorting'. We finally just got to the point where we shoveled it in a box and now occasionally pick through it for random piece parts.

Cheers,
Stein

I thought I was being a little anal-rententive by insisting on anything small enough to fit being kept in ziplock baggies. But, guess not!

Unless you got a kid that will sort for free, best to put them in the aluminum scrap recycle and buy new. I can't afford my hourly rate to "pay" myself to short.

I have a huge tub of machine bolts, nuts and washers of various sizes... we call them "sweepings" and I am sure you can figure out why. They get sorted when you need one.
