We all know magnets have magical properties. They are bipolar mystical phenomena with invisible forces all around them.

This poor´s man magnetic wristband can be a life/time saver when working with screws and nails. It´s much safer than holding stuff in your mouth, specially when handling tools.

Step 1: Materials & Tools

When everything is dry, slide the magnets into the wristband

If you want to go full ghetto style, staple the opening. You can also sew, but more metal is always better.

Do it with a hard drive magnet!

It crossed my mind, but the ones I had were already used in another project and I dont think is worth to hold nails and screws.
