    Dykes With Drills: How to Magnetize a Screwdriver

    By Julie Peri–

    Are you tired of dropping screws? We have a trick for you! Stop losing screws by magnetizing your screwdriver. To do this you just need a screwdriver and a magnet. Rub the magnet in one direction along the shaft of the screwdriver 15 times. Make sure to only rub the magnet in one direction, as you would if you were sharpening a knife. Then test the screwdriver by touching it to a metal screw. Repeat this process if you don’t quite have enough magnetic power yet.

    We hope you enjoyed this tool tip! Join us for more fun tips at our workshops!
