My “workbench” sits on top of a freezer ( ). The freezer metal body allows to me to “hang” all kinds of tools and accessories there from measuring tape to plane hammer to engineer’s square, using magnets as long as they have a metal part.

The dusting brush I recently bought is all wooden. I drilled and CA glued a magnet on its handle and can park it with other tools underneath the workbench.

Great idea.

Magnets may not be woodworker’s best friend, but according to me, they are high on the list. And thanks for reminding me to use CA glue more often!

That’s an expensive dusting brush ($15). A paint brush will also work, but you can buy drafting brushes for under $5 that are just for that purpose.
