Well, a little hoardatorium humor anyway!
I have several "bowls" like that - but I can never find the right size when I need it!
Love those plastic lined "lock tights".
Nylon lock nuts.
Have used them a lot but I hoard them and only use them in the most dire circumstances!!!
As if they are as valuable as a pound of Saffron!!!
As long as you have your hardware sorted into separate containers, I see nothing wrong with that. So what if I have so many containers of nuts, bolt, screws, and other fasteners that it takes me 10 minutes to find the right container. And, then, end up going through the pile I haven't sorted yet because the piece I want isn't in the sorted parts.
I guess I`m what you call organized.
Then I have a ton of power tools fastened away and two full tool chests.
An equal amount to this at my storage lockup and a tool chest in my car.
Yuppers , that was my 1st thought....
the 2nd.....my..everything looks so clean.....like you've washed every piece !!!
Dirty tools? SHUDDER.....never!
This is a very entertaining thread!! Of course the title caught my eye and lo and behold, not the kind of nuts I was expecting!!
Because of King's referal to revered lock nuts & Rayo's "plastic lined" ones, I even scrolled back to see if I could spot to which they refer....but could not.
Vintagerobin......loved your post!! Ain't it the truth about everything!!
And Spring.......you have a place for everything, and everything in its place!!
Here's my nut's
My house is neat as a pin, EVERYTHING in its place, clean and tidy, but my toolbox !! A large pink box OVERFLOWING with assorted tools, sandpaper, duct and electrical tape .. everything you could imagine is jammed in there, and I don't know how to use any of it, except the hammers and screwdrivers, I call my son if I need any repairs done .. he uses the stuff in there, I never touch it. But a least I have it, I have TOOLS !! YESEREE !! .. Joy.
I have suffered from moderate to severe Obsessive Compulsive Disorder all of my life, in all facets of my life - trust me, I KNOW OCD................
Here are are some lock/locking nuts.
1) 'Castellated' and accept either a cotter pin or sometimes wound safety wire through the bolt they hold. This is the type that hold your vehicle's wheels on.
2) Nylon lock nuts. One time use...should be... The nylon damaged by the bolt grips the bolt.
3) (no photo) These are stamped to distort the threads. Should also be one-time use.
4) and more> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Distorted_thread_locknut
good thing a girl said that.....I'm not posting any photo's of my nuts !! ever !
WOW am I tempted HERE!!!!
Oh no....Please don't
Many years ago, I bought DH a nice stack-able tool chest......I do not believe he can get in to all of the drawers any more let alone KNOW what's IN them. NUTS & BOLTS??? They have devolved into many coffee cans under the work bench.... hmmmm, maybe I should be checking out the coffee cans for value....
I have coins in my tobacco cans...but Dad always had his nuts & butts in assorted coffee cans....!!!
