Was working on a lamp yesterday. I had looked in the fount and found it to be very clean on first glance.  

For some reason I moved it just right and heard something rolling around inside. 

Well i looked closer and found several unidentified rolling objects. 

Tried a magnet .. nope. Not having the proper grabbing  tool I shook 5 out and used putty on a stick to get the last three.

After looking they were some type of seed.

Glad I don't pay myself by the hour.

Nice fishing job!  I like the putty on a stick trick.  I've got a lamp I named Cotton that has a nail stuck under the pump tube.  I did fish out half a fount full of cotton and old newspaper, but can't get the nail free without damaging something.  

I didn't think a penny would fit down the filler?  I'm impressed.

I don't recommend the putty trick. I almost lost the putty a couple of times. I was most suprised that other than the eight seeds the fount was very clean. Must have been a very clean mouse.

And the penny is just for scale. Ha

Ha!  You got me with the penny!  If you wrap the putty up the stick a bit it won't fall off so easily.  I fished a platinum wedding ring from inside the frame rail on a Silverado with a putty ball on a stick a few years ago.  Got a $50 tip on top of the $120 labor charge.  Happiest customer I ever had... mostly because he didn't have to explain to his wife how he'd lost his wedding band.

+1 works great for the loose stuff, even the stubborn BB the magnet keeps missing. Will also let you know when your later fount liner is coming apart

I (eventually) rinsed out a BUNCH of newspaper-like Confetti pieces inside my first Model 3 KampKook tank.  Not sure if it was in one piece, but seems not?  Several square inches worth? and printed on both sides.  pretty flimsy paper.  maybe it fell off a bigger piece while dipping to make a torch?  [sCo_idk]

Lots of things get dropped being used as a dipstick  -Matches, pencils, nails, probably that clothes pin part...
