Keep a strong magnet handy to pick up dropped nails, screws, tacks, washers, etc. A magnet is also a great way to keep small adjustment tools like allen wrenches & chuck keys, by your band saw, drill, etc. Old speaker magnets are the best because they are extremely strong for their size. You can easily find super strong magnets in computer hard drives that are no longer working. I have two stuck to the outside lid of my metal toolbox. From the underside of the lid I can keep small metal items that I use frequently, like my 6 inch square rule.
