The multi tool and heavy needle with eye large enough to accomidate the thread is a good idea.

To try and satisfy my "lightweight Jones" I now carry a hank of waxed sail twine and a few needles. I made my own sewing palm out of a small piece of leather with a hole for my thumb. Not as nice as the one in the picture but gets her done!

Like I said my sewing palm is not like the professional one in the pic. It's just a small piece of leather (2.5"x5") with a hole for my thumb. The other end goes down and covers part of my palm. I have been thinking about putting a "dimpled" penny on the palm part...maybe superglue!

A nickle plated "snap" might work also.

If you can find a snap in a garage you are one organized happy camper :D

Just funnin :D I got all my little stuff in them there little plastick drawers. It's still too hard to locate items because I have too many little plastic drawers. I need to affix a sample to the front of the drawer of what's inside of the drawer. Nahhh!!! that would take all the fun out of "The Search"

I have 6 cabinets of little drawers :roll:

Only one plastic cabinet here. And it's overflowing. No labels, strictly search and slide.

To a Doit yourselfer it looks like a dual purpose fishing reel for bluegills,sunfish. The line is hand cast. You can attach it to a hiking staff to create the rod. split shot and hooks in the handle, maybe some artifical bait :D :geek:
