Of course I could not resist the temptation to count the contents of that wee bolts bag this evening.
A grand total of 1,002 tiny bolts | 86 nuts/washers | 2 jumpers/shunts. Yipes! I’d rather underestimated the volume with my guess of 200!
After counting I tipped them into the excellent foldio2 for a quick photoshoot
And how could I resist making a heart?
I did quite enjoy messing about with them, but I do think they have to go. I’m in a completely different life-space than when I began accumulating this stuff, which I estimate was <gasp> over 15 years ago. Back then I was much more of a tinkerer and who knew what you’d need in an emergency or to bust out at the very last minute for a school project?
After sorting through the rest of the hardware collection (big bolts, small screws, big screws &etc), I intend to cull this bag down to 20 and donate the rest to the bower.
And I actually feel surprisingly good about that decision.
