This is a magnetic part holder I made. It’s not my favorite project, but I think I made a better video than my first.

Stay till the end for the outtakes.

Nice idea. I’ve got probably a hundred or more rare earth magnets that are round and about 3/8 across and 1/8 thick. My wife is an audiologist and these magnets come with hearing aids when she buys them. They are meant to be put on your phone so that when you put the phone to your ear the hearing aid detects the magnet and changes settings automatically. The point is, I need to find things to do with them, besides play with them.

Great idea—I need to copy this. Definitely a favorite.

Thanks for the kind words. I think a lot more magnets are needed to make this work better.

Ken, IMO, you need to quit using power tools!

Bogeyguy, I had to check out the video to see what you meant. Everyone that makes videos has to deal with the “safety police”, so you never know what’s going on until you see it for yourself. Instead of quitting power tools, I would say learn how to use them safely, and keep the insurance paid off. In particular, the router table.
