There are several tools that are must-haves for any tech bench, and a set of small flat-head and Phillips-head screwdrivers top the list.
If you have ever worked on any modern electronic gadgets you know how tiny some of the screws can be, and working with those tiny screws is often frustrating at best.
Let me tell you, the job is a LOT easier if your screwdriver is magnetized.
There are several ways to magnetize a screwdriver (or most any metal tool for that matter), but the easiest and safest method is to rub a powerful magnet along the shank of the screwdriver a few times, starting at the handle end.
It’s really easy to do, and the video that follows shows exactly how to do it:
Pretty simple, right?
By the way, you can easily magnetize other types of tools as well. In fact, pretty much any metal tool that isn’t either copper or aluminum can be magnetized!
Have fun with this one.
