    Magnetizer/demag - very useful

    posted by ammama on 04/28/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The magnetizer is very useful - I magnetized my screwdrivers and screwing the little pesky screws in deep holes (as usual for electronic devices) is now incomparably easier. Is useful even for large screws - you place the screw on the screwdriver and insert...
    Cons:
    The Demagnetizer is very weak - it can demagnetize small and thin objects but not thick or not round ones (e.g. scissors). So c...

    Cons:
    - The display of the voltage is hard to read
