PART EATING FLOORS
Am sure everyone here has "part eating floors" right? cant count the # of times something goes flying off the bench and is lost forever! especially C-clips which Ive learned to deal with in a clear plastic bag. Last week I lost a tiny nut spent almost 1/2 on hands/knees and never did find that mother,and yes the part was vital! went to bed that nite took off my shoes and seen something shiny, need I say anymore only this time it was "shoe eating parts.

all seriousness aside, should put rails around the bench but still the part demons always show up

I have the worst floor you could ever install in my heli room. It was surplus granite tiles in a grainy orange and black speckle.Wolves don't lose sleep over the opinions of sheep

I ordered one of those rubber work mats for modeling. We'll see how well it works during the next build. I got tired of looking for stuff that fell on the floor after the last build.

You guy's are not alone! There are times that when I'm building a new heli or rebuilding a heli, every part seems to find the floor! Aarrgg I get to the point of taking everything I'm working on and placing it on the floor and say; "There! Now you're on the floor...happy?!"

After words, everything returns to normal...until the next time!

I had a very large bearing for a motorcycle crank case. Naturally i put the bearing in the freezer to slim it down a bit.
The next day i was searching every place in the garage and all the way down the driveway to see if it rolled out there. NOTHING! I spent a week searching, and after spending $64 on one new bearing since i thought i lost it, I looked in the freezer for an ice cream bar, and there it was.
I felt soooo stupid. Its a bearing! Where could it possibly be? Duh!

Go buy yourself one of those cheap magnetic parts trays from Harbor Freight. I think It cost me $2.50 for a small one and haven't lost a part since. At least not one that's magnetic

I have a really large clear plastic bag that I put my hands in when installing E clips and such.

No lie!

When it goes flying,it's in the bag

When a tiny part flies from my table,I rarely even look for it.lol...
I literally never use the word literally right.

C-clips, ugh!
My garage floor has an epoxy finish with speckles, perfect for camouflaging small fasteners.

I like the c-clip in the bag idea!

My floor mat is made of flubber, therefore I have a 3'x3' magnetic mat installed on the ceiling. Drop parts, then simply look up.Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

Note to self: eat more ice cream, save on parts. Ice cream pays for itself.

Took the words right out of my poor head. And I sure like the magnet ideas everybody!

One thing I started doing is this: because most of the time I drop something, it hits my pants (lap) then onto the floor, I started using a bath towel in my lap to catch stuff. It works.

DANG C clips. One of those miserable things shot clear across the room one time, I hear it ding, and NEVER found it. You don't want to hear my comments.
