    I am, what my wife likes to call, a klutz. So, this is one of the most used tools in my shop.

    If you have ever dropped a small part and could not find it, YOU NEED THIS. With this part finder I located a small screw that I had searched for an hour or two earlier. It was right under my feet, but completely lost in the normal dirt and other droppings on my shop floor. It would have wound up being swept up and thrown away. But, when I finished this device, while testing it, I found it in less than two minutes. The trick is not just that it is illuminated, but in HOW THAT LIGHT IS USED. This device allows that light to be used in the most effective manner for seeing small lost parts. That, very effective technique is explained in the text.

    It is also great for finding and retrieving parts that bounce under benches and other things in the shop.

    Feel free to post any questions you may have in this discussion, either before you purchase or during construction. Or, post pictures of your finished illuminated dropped part finder.
