I mean its a one time cost where as the kit I am looking at I will need to keep buying cans as I use them up.

I think at this point for how few heads I rebuild a year I will just buy that kit from cylinder head supply that I posted. It should last me a while and if I start doing a lot more then I will look into purchasing the electro magnet kit.
It looks like the Magnaflux Spotcheck kit will do both aluminum and iron, along w/other metals. Looks trick, be nice to have if you were going "head hunting".
