Gotta spend as much money on your tools to keep your rc racing cars in top shape.
now, thats where i get into a bit of a jam...
i build my own cars, so should i be bringing aluminium stock, drill press, scroll saw, bandsaw, hack saw, avaiation snips, bead roller, drill? :P

but seriosly, that is a exxiclent idea.

Frig magnents work great. get a few from the pizza hut. glue 1 to the top of the shell and place 2 or 3 on the pit towel or sheet or what ever you use on top of the table.

Also use the magnent prior to packing your stuff up and it will pick up any missing items tha have been dropped on the table.
