Step 1: Finding North
Take your compass and find north. When found, put the piece of metal pointing north as well.
Step 2: Magnetize!
With metal still pointing north, take your hammer and hit the north end. It should be able to pick up small screws, nails, and the like.
Step 3: Finish
Treat this like any other magnet (I wiped 302 pictures off my camera), and have fun!
