I was trying to JB weld some rare earth magnets to the side of my drill press to have a nice spot to keep my chuck key and it kept getting sucked to the surface i wanted clean. I couldnt figure it out, it was like the JB Weld was way runnier than it really was then i noticed it was getting sucked from the bottom of the magnet too. So I ran another rare earth magnet under the cardboard mixing board and noticed the mixed up JB Weld reacted to the magnetic field. I always thought the one tube being labeled as steel was just a marketing thing.

Oh and the rare earth magnets on the side of my drill press work great for securing the chuck key so it doesnt get lost.

I use rare earth magnets on all my tools to secure the various wrenches, chucks, keys, etc. Unless the kids get to them, they are always right where I need them to be!
