I will tell you what to invent. If the cost runs low enough, I bet they would sell like hotcakes. You build a steel funnel, Then below you build a bolt and nut sorter. Everywhere there is a shop you find big piles of bolts and nuts scattered or in buckets and boxes.They are also on the floors often. The problem is..They are various sizes . So you invent this device and the buyer could shovel the piles of bolts and nuts in the top and the sorted ones come out in rows at the bottom to fall in boxes. So,, If you are a bright guy.. Try it. You could make a CEO ,(Or his kin) rich.

OD and ID generally go together -for example,
1/4" nuts have 7/16" heads
5/16" nuts have 1/2" heads
3/8" nuts have 9/16" heads and so on, so if you sorted OD, you'd be mostly matched. :)

Now that would take away the suspense of just knowing you were eventually going to find that 5/16 washer as you claw your way through that big pile of crap.:)

It would save your job if you worked here. We ask for bolts.The boss says look in the boxes.. Then comes back later asking why we took so long to build a mudpump.
