working away on a project and all of a sudden - CRASH ! You
drop a full box or can of nails onto a workshop floor that's
knee-deep in sawdust. What a mess!
the best solution? A magnet, of course (as long as the nails
aren't made of aluminum or another non-magnetic alloy). The
stronger the magnet, the more efficient it will be at capturing
the most nails with each swipe.
you've got them "captured" on the magnet, how do you get them
off without poking your fingers full of holes?
getting started, wrap a piece of rugged cloth (such as denim
or sailcloth) around the magnet. Pick up the nails....then
fold the edges of your cloth around the captive nails, forming
a "bag" of sorts...and pull it away from your magnet, bringing
the nails with it.
