The Power of Magnetism!
« on: November 16, 2017, 07:04:06 AM »
Do you, like me, get tired of hunting for that bolt, nut or other small metal item that you just removed from something and which jumped off the bench? Or worse still, it fell into the grass or dirt at the field and, of course, it is like no other one that you have immediately available!

I have a collection of the small rare earth magnets in different sizes, which I got at Princess Auto for a pittance. They have many uses, including canopy retention on airplanes, etc. Here is another:

 Either on a temporary or permanent basis, I stick them onto one or more of my commonly used screwdrivers and sometimes on some other metal tool or object. That way, when I am removing a screw, I just let it stick to the magnet on the tool until needed.  Depending upon the task at hand, my screwdriver looks like it has a swarm of bees clinging to it by the time everything is ripped apart. No more crawling around on the floor or the grass looking for an escapee!
