Aubuchon Hardware Tip: A magnetic sweeper handles much more than metallic trash or refuse. It can also help quickly clear up those little mishaps where a container gets overturned, spilling nuts, bolts, and other stored magnetic items onto the shop floor. You can run the magnetic sweeper to collect the contents of an overturned bolt drawer, and empty the sweeper onto a shop bench for re-sorting. Using the magnetic sweeper will save you some wear and tear on the knees and make restocking the overturned container much simpler.
