Magnetic Fence for Drill Press or Band Saw

Pick up a Shop-Mag and use it as a fence for repeated accuracy on your drill press or band saw.

The Family Handyman

Pick up a Shop-Mag (approximately $7 at a home center or order from Magnaproducts) and use it as a fence for repeated accuracy on your drill press or band saw. This magnet can raise a 150-lb. outboard motor from a lake bottom, so it wont move when you use it to line up boards for drilling or sawing.Yet it comes loose with a sideways bump of your palm against the eye screw. Tap it along the base with a hammer for fine adjustments. Thanks go to Patrick Hunter for this tip
