This tool is perfect for handling small pieces of flat plate or bar, especially if you do a lot of CNC style cutting with plasma, waterjet, laser, etc. Comfortably hit a switch to turn the magnet on, hit it again to turn it off, works wells even with gloves on and makes unloading a cutting table much less of a chore.
This is not an electromagnet, the buttons activate a solenoid which physically rotates the poles of the magnets inside to control the magnetic force. The number of components has been limited to as few as possible, and in the event of power loss the magnet will not "switch off" and drop its load.
This magnet has up to 66 lbs of safe working load with a max breakaway force of 197 lbs when used on 1/4" thick steel. Max holding force will be less on thinner steel.
This item comes with one magnet, two rechargeable batteries, a charger, and a belt holster for the magnet.
