Magging a reel just got cheaper!

Rate this topic

1 post in this topic

Nice surprise at Harbor Freight today!


Item 67488 is a little bottle of 10 rare earth magnets.

At $2.99, that's less than .30 apiece.

One will tame a conventional reel, two will make it pokey-slow.


All you need besides the magnets, is some epoxy.

Harbor Freight has that too.


BTW Don't let an Aluminum spool discourage you!

The magnets generate an eddy current in the Aluminum.

It has to be CONDUCTIVE, not magnetic. Plastic is no good.


Three bucks, to treat ten reels, is my kind of price!


BTW......while you're there, consider 60677, a 12" boltcutter for $7.99.

Keep it in the buggy, in case someone gets a hook in their hand.

That, and a bottle of peroxide, can salvage an evening!


I bought a nice, Daisy slingshot for $5.99, some really cheap LED flashlights, some batteries ......
