Parts Stored In Left-Over Baby Food Jars
Don B. Dallman, Nokesville, Va.: "My granddaughter had 81 left-over baby food jars that she had saved. I put them to use in my shop by building an octagon-shaped, rotating screw-and-parts holder that really works well. The rotating drum is made from 1 by 4's attached to a length of 1/2-in. dia. conduit that hangs horizontally from the basement's ceiling joists. I poked holes in the jar lids, then used śliquid nail' to stick the lids to the boards. I also stapled them on for extra strength. To remove a screw or part I simply rotate the holder until the jar I need is at the bottom.
  "I never thought that I would fill all the jars, but I did. Now I'm collecting more jars so that I can make another unit for my garage."
