    When I was much younger I was always amazed that my grandfather always had the perfect screw, nail, glue, anchor, rope, string, piece of leather, scrap of aluminum, small widget, or large doohickey for any project that he was working on. I remember thinking "how does he do that? I'll never have a collection this cool." Now, 30 years later I totally understand. After a lifetime of projects, you end up with all those thing. The important part is keeping it all organized in little bins, drawers, and trays. It is possibly the greatest memory I have of my grandfather and that best thing he ever taught me.

    I was very fortunate to visit M5 (my friend was a cameraman on Myth Busters) and that wall of boxes was just amazing with its height and length. It was simply unimaginable beforehand. I spent time just looking at the labels on those boxes and some were crazy such as dried blood, bones and raw meat. The boxes didn’t seem to be in any systematic order,, but Jamie assured me that he had a good idea and wouldn’t take long to retrieve what he was after. Janine also talked about finding a better solution when looking for something else. Seeing some of the Myth Buster experiments such as the rolling moss machine in M5 was absolute joy. Jamie was very generous showing us around.

    Great idea to add upon Jamie's boxes. I have a lot of things I've collected over the years because they may be needed for a future project. I decided to catolog everything digitally. Each shelf has a letter, and each box has a number. I have taken pictures of every single item, big and small. Put them in a spreadsheet and I associate the items with Tags, Keywords, a description, and dimensions, so that I can easily search for stuff when I'm working on something or brainstorming.

    Just like a mechanic in a garage organises nuts, bolts, washers and other small parts that get used a lot in a lin-bin filing system In the garage trade in the uk, you call what you just described as "impress stock" You would have wiper blades, batteries, bulbs, and other items which could fail on cars, for all different makes and models of cars, just incase your open on a sunday, and someone brings a car in for that, because not many parts suppliers are open on sundays, and if you dont have the part, you lose that customer, if that customer goes to a different garage, the chances are they will stay with that garage If they get their car fixed at your garage, the chances are they will keep coming back Impress stock is usually supplied free, on a purchase after sale basis, either that, or you pay a deposit for a certain amount of stock, and pay the supplier when you have sold a percentage of that stock

    That's why I don't do commercial special effects anymore, your lack of planning, time and budget is not my problem. That and the fact that what they actually want is very often significantly different from what they asked for. I once got asked by the art department if I could spray Silver metallic confetti purple as they could only get silver and they needed both silver and purple! (1) That's not going to work. (2) Surely spraying stuff is the art departments problem? (3) You're doing high speed Phantom filming with a S**t tonne of lights, why not Gel some of them purple? Which they did, and it worked. Sill didn't get any thanks or extra pay for getting them out of the crap though.

    I wasted an immense amount of time trying to remember where in Hell I put the box of metric bolts etc. I admired the RACK of STUFF in Jamie's shop. When I saw how it was made I was really impressed. Mild steel tubing is such a useful material. It does not get brittle when you weld it and it is light enough for most uses. It makes a MIG welder the ultimate hot glue gun.
