It's delightful to find something (especially a mech) that exists that  
I don't have to build or tool to get to work.

Recently, I found a hard case for golf clubs at K-Mart -- very  
economical at $40, and great for certain puppets.

Little things like carborator clamps are great for attaching rods to  

Of course, there's the ubiquitous umbrella ...

any other objects with hidden uses out there?
