Any Ideas What to do with Them Thangs?

themthangs
You know those little brass round things on the end of your guitar strings? Well I’ve been collecting them (AFTER I remove the strings) and I just don’t have the slightest idea what to do with them other than to collect them and ask people “what do you do with these things?” I get a buncha real blank stares.

Any ideas? I’m totally stymied. I just don’t have the heart to just toss 'em.
Thanks!

Some folks make jewelry from old strings.

Along the lines of what Dave said: Save them up and make a bracelet? Maybe some hoop earrings.

I seem to recall that some people put an extra ball on their strings if their bridge plate was getting chewed up, but I prefer to slot my bridges to avoid the chewing in the first place.

Always handy for little craft projects such as model boat building, model railways etc

Could reload them in a shotgun shell… might be interesting!

Somebody suggested to me using them in snowballs…
