Default Re: stupid old people yet again

Age doesn't really play into it. Anyone can drop something. Usually it was a critical part, and/or it vanished when it hit the floor or found the most inconvenient place to go.

It always amazes me when I drop something, hear it hit, maybe even see it hit, then disappear from view. I wish I had a buck for every hour I've spent looking for a small part or piece that slipped out of my grasp.

How about buffing or grinding a small part on a bench buffer/grinder? It slips and you hear a 'ping' and whatever you were working on is...gone. Hopefully it didn't find an open spark plug hole.
