I like the word "Deal". But not in the modern sense.
My grandfather and people of his generation used the word "Deal" a lot in conversation, to describe any object.
For instance, "I was working with this deal and it came apart.", or "I was changing the tires, and one of the deals was stuck on so I had to break the bolts to get the deal off", or "Hey, hold this deal upright for me while I secure the other end."
I don't know if I'll ever hear it again in a sentence, as it is very old-timey, but it makes me think of home.
