FYI, Your mileage may vary, but Menards is closing out the As seen on TV Tool Bandid for $3 ...an ok gadget, but if you cut it open there are 12 very strong quarter sized earth magnets...should come in handy for cache placement

Cool. I just bought 30 of them. I'm going to make a coat out of them, then I can roll around on the ground to find difficult micros in the woods.

Methinks someone needs to get some sleep and not stay up so late at night "thinking".

I just bought a few. There are actually 15 magnets in there and yes, they are strong!

Just purchased 5 of them, and I can actually use 1 for it's intended purpose, the rest will get cut up. Thanks for the link. WOOHOO love waiting for stuff in the mail. Probably stick nicely to my head.

I bought one off Amazon for $5.23 and those are some strong magnets!

I found a few years back that the mags inside a computer hard drive are quite strong. I have a nice stack of them on the fridge. I have not used any for caches yet. but I do use them for caching. have them in the bag.

I've tried that too but they are much harder to extract and I only have a few dead hard drives.
