Introduction: Neodymium Metal Detector Stick

I usually take apart electronics at my desk (one of my favorite hobbies). When I do, screws fall on the floor which is terribly annoying.

So, as an inventor, I'm not going to get off my chair and pick them up.

The parts I used are:

A neodymium magnet from a hard drive

One screw and a nut

An umbrella handle

And, tons of cable ties

Step 1: Selfie Monopod

I hate taking selfies so I didn't do this, But it is also possible to attach a phone bracket like this one, glue the magnet onto the bracket and attach the phone.

Be careful when putting a magnet near your phone screen!

Step 2: This Works for Most Magnetic Jars

    Small upgrade, Put a plastic bag over the magnet before using it.

    Remove the bag and the screws will come with the bag, no more fighting with small screws, metal dust, etc.

    This looks very useful! Nicely done.
