    I want to use use this to make a magnet glove to force things to me

    Alright it was a cool variable though

    I tried this everything the same except a different metal wire and i noticed it didnt work and set it down and after about 30 secs i picked it up and it was super hot!! I dissabled it and put it in cool water but any longer and it could have set in fire!
