Shop tip welding

Every now and then just by dumb luck I stumble onto a neat trick, and I have one for the welders... All my welding magnets had metal filings all over them. This can not be helped, however try this one on. It so simple it is stupid, just take a blow gun or blow tip with about 60/90 psi and blow off those little hitchhikers.......... I was amazed it cleaned the magnets completely.............. maybe I am late to this table, but from some of the pictures I see this tip might come in handy, just my $0.02

I cut shim stock to lay between the magnet and metal, then just pull the stock and the magnet stays clean.

Try using the magnets while inside a zip lock bag. When you're done turn the bag inside out, retrieve the clean magnet and dispose of the bag and filings.
