I've seen those, and I'll bet they work great for picking up nails.

That is a very good idea. Could always tie a rope to it, if a feller didn't want to bend over. It sure would have came in handy the day Mike spilled that box of deck screws in the dirt.

I've used one of those magnet things on wheels. That is a handy tool.

Above I posted a picture of my new fishing magnet, that one is supposed to be a 1,200 pound model. It was $65 or so. There's just no comparison between this magnet and the 50 pound model. Haven't had a chance to put it in the water yet, but it'll pick up my pocket knife from about 4 inches away.

It tells you in the paperwork: "Strong magnets are not for childrenz". We'll get along just fine.

Here's another picture of my 1,200 pound magnet, it weighs 4 pounds on the scales. It was shipped with a bottle of "thread lock" stuff. Thinking about the eye-nut twisting off of the bolt, I figured it'd be best to drill a hole and use a cotter pin. I started the hole, and burnt up 2 bits, asked a buddy (maintenance guy friend) to finish the job on their milling machine. He brought it back last evening with a "roll pin" for me to use. In a way, I think it'd be best with a cotter pin. Either way, the eye-nut should never twist off accidentally.
