Great idea Marv, and its nice to not have wasted your time making it for a one off, I just found a hand scraper made from a file at apprentice school around 55 years ago, I love old tools that have someones name on them as I feel a connection somehow.
A few of my holding gadgets for assembly work on motorcycles which by nature are compact devices, nothing is more frustrating than retrieving a nut for the umpteenth time of the garage floor so one has to be resourceful.
I have a set of three fishing forceps which self lock but if a nut pings out of those it will go a long way.
My favorite is a piece of lead wrapped round a ring spanner which a nut can sit in, a blob of grease for a washer on top works most times where a hand cant reach, also aluminum foil can be a help in forming a nest in the end a ring spanner.
Its all good fun isn’t it, isn’t it?
