MAKE YOUR HAM­MER MAG­NETIC

Popular Mechanics (South Africa) - - News -

you can make a ham­mer more use­ful – hard to imag­ine, we know – by adding a mag­net to the han­dle to as­sist in pick­ing up the ( hope­fully) oc­ca­sional fallen fas­tener. Get a cylin­dri­cal rare-earth mag­net with a small di­am­e­ter ( at most hard­ware or craft stores) and drill a hole in the cen­ter of the bot­tom of the han­dle to ac­com­mo­date it. add a dab of glue to the hole be­fore in­sert­ing the mag­net. Use a plug cut­ter for the ini­tial hole and you can en­close the mag­net for a clean, in­vis­i­ble in­stall.
