It’s a problem that may occur frequently in your shop. You need a small part, such as a screw, heat-shrink terminal or O-ring, and you must stop everything to look for it. Maybe it’s in a box or drawer, mixed up with other small parts that need to be sorted and organized. Maybe it’s been misplaced, or you used the last of your stock and didn’t replenish it. Perhaps the part was improperly stored and no longer usable. You find yourself running out to a brick-and-mortar store to buy parts more often than you’d like.
