Are we related? That describes my dad to a T. He had his card catalog in the basement separating screws from bolts and they were all sorted by size. He had them all in old baby food jars. After we moved to the new house I don't know what he did with that thing. I don't think I've seen it in almost 20 years. I always attributed it to him being an engineer.
