[Boatanchors] Why didn't I think of that?

I used a later VW hubcap - the flattened dish ones with a lip inside - and
some heavy magnets glued inside.  Prior to that, I used the old banged up
moon hubcaps with three legs welded on the outside.  It sounds like someone
who was of the same school of mechanics as I was is capitalizing on the
former idea.  :-D

By the way, for electronics, I graduated to a muffin tin with the different
screws etc in different cups.  After several incidents where they slid off
the bench, I figured out that maybe putting a non-slip surface on the bottom
might not be a bad idea.  Now I'm up to cheapie-doodle plastic partition
boxes with covers that really close (and heavy rubber bands holding them
closed as added insurance when I'm not actually in them) since even the
muffin tins didn't compensate for the simple fact that I'm still a basic
klutz.  :-D

I am me.  I’m the only one who’s qualified.
