For what it is worth I'll tell about a couple items I purchased over the last couple of years to help when I spill small beads, drop hooks or whatever. I got a cheap cookie sheet and placed my vise on it. It's fairly large and does not interfere with tying. If I happen to spill a container of beads or drop hooks or spill my head cement it normally is all contained in the cookie sheet. It certainly makes clean up easier. The second item was a "power pick magnet". This is simply a large magnet about 2 1/2 by 14 inches on a handle that extends. You can push it around like a mop when you drop hooks or similar things on the floor. This is available at Lowes and probably Home Depot. These two items have saved me a lot of trouble lately.
