Use this to magnetise and demagnetise metal objects. Particularly good when you magnetise screwdrivers so the screws won’t drop from the tip when you are starting to screw them down. You can also magnetise a long wire so you can use it to pick up screws which have dropped into nooks and crannies and hard to reach places such as drain or sink holes, or while working on your car. We found it particularly good for picking up and screwing down the tiny little screws on spectacles.
We bought it from the Bunnings at Cnr Main North Rd & Kings Rd, Parafield, SA for $9.50.
Summary An excellent way for helping with fiddly hardware tasks.
