Strong Magnet On A Stick
Category: Shop, household, tools, accessory, magnetic, tool
Problem: Since I am 6’-4” and getting old and stiff, it is really tough for me to bend down and pick up stuff off the shop floor, particularly some of the smaller items: screws, washers and so on.
Action: I purchased one of the 2” fairly powerful magnets that has a hook on it and attached it to the end of an old mop handle. So now I am able to pick up things quickly, even tools that drop, with this magnet, which has made my life in the shop much more pleasant
Result: It works great!
Additional Thoughts: I also drilled a hole in the handle so I could hang it on a nail.
