Similar story. I have a large wooden box which I have carefully measured and subdivided with battens to provide several compartments for all my woodscrews, according to size. 3-5000 screws maybe. Sits under the workbench as a drawer. Pulled it out the other day and the drawer stop failed so it came right out and deposited everything on the floor. That's my 'evening project' for a few days/weeks.Mrs Fred wanted the facias and gutters replaces round the stables, so spent the weekend doing it, had the usual farm bucket filled with 2 billion screws, nails, rawlplugs, etc which I hastily dumped on the front seat of the Disco in the dark to come home. "Want a cup of tea before we go?" says she. 'I'll get my mug out of the Disco....' So the bucket fell out as I opened the door and scattered all the contents in the crud. Have to go back with the C Scope to make sure we found them all.
