We have a nice car shop in the backyard, and it is the source of a lot of fun. We recently obtained a “jiggle cleaner” that is used to clean old nuts, bolts, washers and screws to recycle on our car projects. It is great fun to put rusty, nasty pieces in it and after a few hours, fish them out with a magnet and see how clean and shiny they are! We put them in a plastic sweater box to sort them out by size and type.
Once in the box, we took this photo, and we are having it blown up and made into a jigsaw puzzle. Should be quite maddening!
