It’ll only take a second to nab the perfect-size nuts or washers from that big can loaded with 20 years’ worth of leftover hardware. Pour the cargo onto a rubber car mat ($2 at discount stores), rake through the pile until you find the right whatever, then use the mat as a chute to pour the heap back into the can.
