But only if you stick with pennies.   :cool:

I suppose I could use rocks as weights. 
That would be cheaper. 

Actually I have used rocks a few times...
They just happened to be handy at the time (not the ones in my head). 

Sometimes you just have to grab whatever is in arm's reach.

Let's not forget clamps, clothes pins, and rubber bands,
to hold things while glue dries!

Dave,

Like your nicely weathered heavily used clothes pin.

I found some miniature clothes pins at a discount store that have proved to be useful.

My wife recycles them to me when she is finished with them.

When the Charles Co. found the need for transporting chemicals to the fish head processing locality,
a home made tank car was fashioned in the company shop. 

A surplus tank was installed on a company owned flat car.

After a while a new tank car was procured to haul the chemical. 

It was painted red...

To distinguish it from the tanks with the liquid glue, 
these cars were silver and lettered for the company.

All the tank cars have a valve to unload the liquid.
