    I’ve never had much luck with magnets after the first use. They clog up with shavings and become a headache after that. YMMV

    Twin2 must be well-off to afford those high-falutin t-bar magnets. :cool:

    Magnets are useful, but they keep/attract metal dust, need cleaning... work only on metal.

    I have some of those, just not that expensive...

    I also use these in various forms for tack things together...

    "We highly recommend you get at least 10.... You can keep the extras in case you lose or break some"
    This marketing strategy is not exactly confidence inspiring to get me to buy their product. It seems they just want to sell as many as they can.
