    Yep. James clarified. Im not sure how much residual magnetisim remains, but it would HAVE to be easier to clean than a non-switched you would think

    Here's one. Magswitch has a good reputation with woodworking tools so Id imagine their metal products would be OK too

    Interesting. Either I haven't come across them before, or if I did I didn't realize what they were.

    I just use a sack made out of nylon that looks like tent material. It keeps the big stuff off the magnet, and doesn't tear as easily as a ziploc. But, metal dust does work its way through the cloth.

    I'm too lazy to store them properly in a bag. I just throw em on my welding cart and when I need it I use a old rag and swipe off the metal filing when I need it.

    Mine stay in a ziplock bag. The freezer bags are a little bit tougher.

    I cut out a piece of sheet metal and screwed it to the wall. I store my magnets and my magnetic parts trays on it. The Switched magnets are still magnetic after you turn off the switch. Yes they are a little easier to clean. All the magnets are just to get a couple tacks. Not meant to weld into the mag field.

    To clean small metal filings from my magnets, I have found compressed air blows the filings right off. Of course, you always have to be careful not to get them in your eyes.

    I do not worry about it, a 100PSI air nozzle cleans
    them up in no time w/ little effort...
    But for the record and FWIW, they all are stuck to my H-Frame Press.
