Default magswitch magnets

I've been eyeing magswitch magnets for awhile. I hadn't pulled the trigger just because I hadn't played with any of them, and wanted to be sure they were worth the sticker price. Well last month I was at a product show and they had a booth there and I played with them. VERY impressive!! So I ordered me some and got them in last week. Had the opportunity to put them to use this weekend on 2 different jobs I did. Absolutely love them!! Still pricey but worth it to me since I'm always short on hands. And they're truly off. Even grinding dust won't stick to them!!!

And Lucy had to get in the pic too

Right next to the massive burnout.



Those are really nice magnets. I believe that's the supplier for the lincoln branded models I played a few months ago. Impressive as all get out.

Yes I agree. Seem identical. And yes I have my dad to thank for the burnout, right after I welded the axle tubes to the rear end of his show car. I guess that was my payment...lol

I hate magnets when it comes to setup! When you want something to come out square when you are tacking why would you want to hold it square when you know the tack is going to pull??????
