This is very true ,Ilearned this procedure about 45 years ago And forgot it.Thanks for bringing it back to my memory bank.I worked in upholstery and use to use a tack hammer and used to magnetize it this way.Thank you,Herman

Pretty cool. I knew how to magnitize it by rubbing it with a magnet, but creating an electro-magnet this way is a pretty useful substitue when you don't have a spare magnet around...

how long does it last for?

long enough to get the job done i suppose.i mean really,in 5 minutes you could magnetize every screwdriver,drill bit,allen wrench and so forth that you own.

as long as you don't tap or drop the skruedriver it will hold a long time, and longer then using a non electricmagnet :-)

oooooooooohhhhhh

thank you
