Yeah... two trays full of assorted screws, bolts, washers, nuts, cotter pins and blind rivets on the hangar floor will sure keep you entertained for a good long while. The moral of the story is, don't set that stuff close to the edge of the table. Sigh. I'm still finding stuff on the floor once in a while.

Default a different kind of disaster

I went to mix up some WLS primer and when I triggered the drill motor, the stuff just welled up and exploded out of the can all over the workbench. Memo to self: "Slow speed next time!"
