Sorting Screws When Building You Helicopter

    Hey guys. This little tip can work for not only helicopters, but for planes, trucks and cars too. I used to just pour all of the screw out on my work bench, in piles according to size and type.

    This proved to be a bad idea, because they would get mixed up, knocked off the bench, or scattered all over the table.

    My husband actually came up with a cool idea, that keeps them all sorted by size and type...and also cleans them at the same time.

    All you need are a couple of cheap ice cube trays...available at any dollar store. Just put the screws into the compartments in the tray, and then pour a little alcohol ( I use denatured) into the compartments with the screws. The machine oil will soak off of them as you build and everything stays neat and organized.

    As you need them, you just take them out with tweezers or a magnetized screwdriver..wipe them dry and install them. I also like to label the compartments with sticky notes so I can identify the size I need at a glance.
