: 2. Jon: Retrieving lost nuts - go to Sears, get the magnetic grabbers. They're $25 and you don't need them now but JUST GET THEM. You'll be glad you did someday.... Also in a pinch pressing a strong magnet onto a screwdriver will magnetize it decently. There are also 3 finger grabbers that are good for non ferrous objects.

Somewhere I do have one of those 3 finger grabbers, but I wasn't at home.

Actually, the best advice came from JonM, who specifically indicated that if you apply tape to the nut and where it attaches to beforehand, it'd be easier to handle. I lost it when I was pulling out the wrench.

Just tape it down before trying to remove it.
