Is it just me or is it gravity

Never had this happen before. Everything on my welding bench is now magnetized, appartently even the bench. Wasn't yesterday. Not all bad though, the grindings and filings make some neat patterns. Any ideas why and what I can do about it?

Don't get a metal plate in your head....................

Honestly don't know what would cause this. I have a metal bench that I have welded on for years, never magnatized.

take some welding scrap and stick it to the bottom of the bench, the scrap should take the magnatism, it does work.

don't set your 8 track tapes on it. It will erase them. I know that when I weld while my work area is in a big pile of filings and grinding dust the induction field around the ground lead makes the filings arrange themselves into really cool patterns. Just looking at them can keep me occupied for hours and hours and hours an................

I want what YOUR smoking

definitely see how your leads are around the table you should try using a old speaker magnet and rub it on the table to reduce the magnetism built up in the table I dunno this is a new one to me

see if this helps I couldn't get a short cut to the page sorry

It's due to the hydomagnetic electrical impulses randomly transmitted and cross-transmitted through the pulse electrical energy emitted from the negative electrons colliding with the positive electrons in your welding cable, or something like that so I've been told. And yes, the '60's were good for me.

[QUOTE=Rob Keller]I want what YOUR smoking

It should be YOU'RE. Like as in "you are", with an apostrophe in the place of the "a". "I want what you are smoking" . Sorry ,I couldn't resist. The smoke 's all gone. All I have left from those days is scorched lungs and some old Cheech and Chong records. I have always been easily amused. Momma said I was special. One time I had my wallet in my front pocket and BOTH welding leads were laying across my lap while I was welding. I had to get every atm and credit card that was in my pocket replaced. Come to think of it, my kids are kind of funny looking too. If you want to see some neat patterns take that old speaker magnet and rub it around on your TV screen. It will mess up the TV beyond repair but it sure makes some cool patterns before the screen goes away. Makes trails too. I think oldred pegged it with the wrapped lead thing. I gotta go fix my tinfoil pyramid hat now.

It must be very dry there and the use of electrical equipment would definitely charge nearby metal objects. I would try hitting the bench with a heavy hammer which should discharge the juice. But first try putting a cat on the bench for an interesting pic. Speaking of metal benches does anyone have the plans for a good one, say about 3 feet by 5 or 6 feet.,,, thx fast ed
