Finding a particular nut or bolt amid a can full of small parts can be difficult and frustrating (Image 1). That's where an old baker's pan comes in handy. Use a drill press to cut a hole in the pan (Image 2). Make sure the pan is clamped down securely. Set the speed setting to low to cut into the metal pan.
Use the pan to separate the pieces into individual jars to keep similar pieces organized. Be sure to use clear jars so you can see what's inside.
