Fastcap Super Mag Review, It’s Magnalicious

Is it me, or does it seem like magnets have come a long way? As a kid, I remember playing with magnets that by today’s standards barely were attracted to metal. Today’s magnets on the other hand come with pinch warnings and could probably erase all your credit cards if you’re not careful.

Fastcap (a sponsor who helps support more tasty content from us), sent us one of their Super Mag magnets to check out. The Super Mag has 6 high performance neodynium magnets, all lovingly encased in a soft, non-marring polymer. This translates to strong holding power, without scratching up whatever your magnet is gripping. Holding power is a good thing, but scratched shop surfaces are not.

The Super Mag also features an extra large knob, which offers you easy leverage. So, unlike those high power magnets that are permanently stuck to your refrigerator since you can’t get your fingers under them, the Super Mag is easily removable. In a pinch, the knob can also double as a hook to hang items off of. The magnet is strong enough, you can actually hang a bit of weight on it if you have a need.

I found the magnet most useful for securing notes and cut lists, which is what it’s really designed for. It found a nice home attached to my Delta dust collector, as well as my metal pegboard. Without a magnet like this, it seems I’m inevitably chasing around looking for that little slip of paper I put the measurements on. The Super Mag makes it easy to stay focused on your work, and less distracted hunting papers. And, since the base of the Super Mag is orange, it provides very nice visibility, which is handy if your shop is as cluttered as mine.

The Super Mag is available for just under $10 straight from Fastcap.

About Marc Lyman

Marc grew up under a brave single mom who "encouraged" home improvement on the family home. Early toddler gifts included a tool set, and even a cordless Bosch drill when cordless drills first came out. In grade school (give or take a few years), Marc's mom said, "We need to cut down some trees. . . . here's a chainsaw." A father figure also involved Marc in many home improvement projects, including a summer of home remodeling in Palo Alto, CA. Toss in some Obsessive Compulsive personality traits researching everything home improvement related. The end result: a genetically pre-disposed, socially sculpted home improvement machine!
