Things that don’t belong in the weaving world

Or do they?
Enter bolts. Free of grease and dirt, unused in their direct purpose.
Yet quite handy for yours truly, to be used as weights for mended warp threads (cause: a knot or a broken thread). And also to even out a tension in an individual thread, if yours truly was not careful winding the warp to the back beam.
Way handier than plastic film cans with change, where a cap holds the thread. I find them chewing on a thread, plus, I abhor a thought to use money as dead weight.
