So tell us your 'tricks' for not loosing those pesky little parts please. The IBM typewriter guys of past ages had some pretty cool special use tools for these situations.

The only "trick" was to be very careful. We also carried an "oil cloth", which could be spread over the holes in the floor. Of course we always carried spares of commonly used small parts.

The next and more interesting trick, was getting the company car turned around on the pier, before heading back to shore. ;-)
