When I was a girl, my Dad impressed on me the importance of taking care of tools.
Machine knitting is such a messy craft. Even if you haven't acquired all the toys, a basic machine setup has lots of pieces and parts.
To keep your claw weights handy (ribber weights too) and to keep the teeth from getting bent, hang a knitted swatch from your stand or table. Anywhere nearby and out of the way will work.
Get in the habit of hanging your weights in the swatch instead of tossing them in a drawer or behind your machine.
