Put the magnet in the bottom of a milk jug. Then just lift the magnet and all the metal fall off. Keeps the magnet clean. edit: Couple requests for an explanation. I tried to find the gif or video I saw years ago to no avail. Works like a store bought metal shop sweeper. Take an empty plastic container such as a milk jug. In the case of a milk jug, cut a hole in the top big enough for your hand clutching your magnet to fit through. Insert magnet into jug/container. Sweep the magnet containing jug/container across the area needing steel/iron scrap cleanup. Once it has picked up all it's going to, hold it over your scrap receptacle of choice. Reach in and lift the magnet up and watch all the scrap drop right off. Repeat as necessary and rejoice.

you know they make magnets on a stick just for this? Also, no glove here is just asking for an injury.

I recently realized that my really strong magnet can be used for removing those security disks from clothes. I'd never use it for shoplifting, but it's saved me a trip back to the store on several occasions when the store forgets to remove them.

Can someone explain why that magnet is so much stronger than a typical magnet? Can they be bought easily? Probably wouldn't buy one, because I know I would forget and slap it on the side of the refrigerator. Then I would be dragging my refrigerator around the kitchen trying to get it off of there.

Why are there so many nails in the fire pit?

This works as an analogy for how much attention a woman gets on Omegle.

I hope the magnet-holder doesn't leave that in the house or near anyone with a pacemaker. Jeez. And wear some gloves, you hooligan.

If i were to run that magnet over my hard drive would that be able to pick up my deleted files?

This is how you find a needle in a haystack; burn it then use a magnate.

I am considering magnet fishing, a hobby that requires a strong magnet tied to a rope. You toss it into rivers near bridges or beaches on lakes. Then I had a dream one night about the UPS driver trying to get my new super magnet out of his truck..

Life pro tip Never watch a video a powerful magnet and decide to order one online at the same time you’re expecting a new hard drive
