Here's an ideal helping tool. If you are working with small parts, like nuts, nails or safety pins, keep this bowl handy! It will gladly hold a pile of stuff, even upside down. Use it under the car or under the kitchen sink to hold those important parts until they're needed again. Or stick it on the side of your sewing machine to keep extra pins or needles....or living dangerously, pins AND needles?! High-quality steel 3" bowl. Powerful magnet.
