Magnets

I have access to super strong magnets about the size of a quarter and was wondering what useful purpose they have. I was looking on e-bay to see if I could sell them and how much they would go for and found an unusual use for them. Right now I have a couple of them stuck under my rear rack to hold a machete. Yes they are that strong. Anyway, I saw on e-bay they sell a smaller version to put in your automatic transmission pan on your car to help pull the microscopic metal pieces away from the filer giving longer filter life. That got me thinking why couldn't I just stick one on the end of my oil filter and do the same thing? Last week I stuck on on my filter and I'm going to give it a couple of rides then cut the filter apart to see if it does anything. I'd be willing to give a few away but you'll have to pay for shipping.

I can't ship them in a regular envelope, they are to strong and would stick to anything they came close to. Did I mention they are strong?

I can put a couple of them together and wrap them in bubble wrap and put them in that USPS express mailer envelope. The last secondary spring I shipped cost $4.95 so I don't see how it can cost any more than that.

You'll probably have to use two pairs of pliers to get them apart.

If anyone's interested shoot me a pm and we'll work out the details

Disclaimer: I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE IF YOU DO NOT RESPECT THE POWER OF THESE MAGNETS. THEY WILL HURT YOU IF HANDLED IMPROPERLY. THESE ARE NOT TOYS.

There used to be an old theory floating around if you put a magnet on your fuel line it would change the stucture of fuel as it flowed by, claiming to increase your mpg..

I've never heard of that before. I'm dropping 8 of them off to hondarevoveryman this morning. Lets see what kind of uses he can find for them.

A friend of mine paints oxygen and acetylene cylinders at his work. He sticks one magnet in each pocket and hangs the spray paint cans from them while he's painting.

I use them to hold a tarp over my welding trailer. I put one on each corner of the tarp and stick them to the trailer.

I had a guy ask me for some one time because his boat flipped over in about 15 feet of water and he wanted to get his shotgun off the bottom of the lake. He put 3 of them in a sock, tied a rope to it and got his shotgun back.

Did I mention they were strong? LOL

his are probably stronger than what i have. But those would make a good magnet for that purpose. Maybe even stick one to the oil drain bolt too!
