i'll be busy saturday, sunday, and monday. i may be
able to put in a little time tuesday before 3 PM, it
looks like i'll be able to put in time wednesday and
thursday during the daytime and friday before 3 PM.
my pet "in-the-shop" interest is screws and such:
some easy to get to place where various screws, nails,
other fasteners (anchor and molly bolts), and
knowing where that place is or should be is the
main thing. i don't want to invest a bunch of time
setting things up to discover that someone else
decides that's where something else should be.
the way i organize such, i have a place for sheet
metal and wood screws, a place for machine screws
and nuts and bolts, a place for nails, a place for
adhesives, a place for general hooks and braces, a
"hell box" for similar ]but different, and a found-it
box for anything and everything i find lying around
after doing something.
in each place i have sub-places for common sizes
and miscellaneous, e.g. common sizes of panheads and
a container of odd-sized panheads. common sizes i
leave in their marked boxes. miscellany i put in a
jar or cardboard box or other single container.
any screws, nails, or what-not i find lying around
i put in the found-it container. once in a while i
dump the found-it container and sort and distribute
to proper places.
i'm proposing such a scheme.
whatever the scheme, after it's implemented, i
can add a bunch of various screws that are currently
in the storage closet across the way.
