Usually between 3/8, 7/16 and 1/2 nuts.
That would be the ulterior motive. my need to pick them up. so, I can sort through the half ton of Nut's & Bolts I have.

A few years ago. I bought I think it was eighteen or twenty bends of nut's and Bolt's from a hardware store, going out of business. each bend has six drawers
and about half full of hardware "Nuts & Bolts" and a few weeks ago a buddy of mine down the road gave me a five-gallon bucket full of hardened bolts, Of 3/4" up mostly new bolts... So the OCD thing here is it's an udder and total mess... And I need to reorganize them. So, I won't look at the mess and go Ah, Crap, And just run down to Napa and buy some fastener, over searching the mess for what I'm looking for.
