Great video Paul. I have been thinking about purchasing a couple of these magnets myself, but have been put off by their price.

Thanks for sharing the information Paul. You’ve come up with some very functional uses for them.

I’m completely in with the MagJig technology. I not only use them on my saw table, but also on the router table.

Paul, thanks for the review. These look very useful and haven’t seen them yet.

Thanks for the video.
I noticed that in one place it looked like you needed three hands to hold the board, hold the mag switch and to turn the knob. What about the idea of driving a screw through the screw hole and then cutting off the head. You will still be able to move the magnets, but would not have to hold the magnets body.

I thought that the magnets were a little expensive. I have been using magnetic base for micrometers that I got at hf for 11 dollars each, they work just fine.

I’ve got a couple of these some time ago and have found them useful on a table saw, but perhaps surprisingly, also on a scroll saw as a fence. The trick to using a fence on a scroll saw is to use a spiral blade so that you can cut even when the fence is slightly off-angle. I use the heaviest spiral blade I could find since the thin ones do tend to bend. In the photo you can see a cut being made
with the table set at a roughly 45 degree angle.

The only thing I would add is that to use them for multiple jigs, I would add either some small dowels or cutoff nails where the screw holes are so you don’t have to hold it while turning it on/off.
Another item that has been on my wish list, now more examples to move it up the list!

Great Video. Enjoyed your presentation and instructions. Very clear and understandable. I have a featherboard I made years ago using these same magnets and it is easy to set up and use. I like your idea on the router table. I think I will make something similar to hold my dust collector port when sanding projects on top of my table saw.
