Brilliant! I imagine they are great for picking up spilled nails too

That's a nice, simple hack, but I have two questions;

● Don't you get nails flying around with each strike?

● Why are you using geological hammers to put in nails?

Geological hammers? Really? Good to know :-) Anyway this is what I have ..

Anyway regarding your first question - the nails do not "flying around" while use small nails (not like the ones in the picture), I also got exceptionally strong magnets, they are called "neodymium magnet" (also known a Neo magnet).

you can look for them here:
