Tiny Screw Magnet Trick
There are a lot of things that use tiny screws that we need to periodically unscrew. Eye glasses, security screws on front doorbells, computer cases… The problem is it is all too easy to drop and lose these tiny screws.
My solution is simple. A magnet on the screwdriver keeps the tiny screw on the tip. It has worked on all the screws I’ve tried it on so far so all of them are ferric steel. There is a non-ferratic version of stainless steel so it is possible to have a screw that won’t attach by magnetism.
Note the magnet does not need to have a hole in the center – mine just happens to be a ring.
