This amazing little magnet reached out and latched itself so tenaciously to the three-pound wrench pictured that I could have easily extradited it from a sticky harbor bottom or out from under an engine pan (where it once vacationed).

Special electrical properties of the rare-earth element neodymium is what makes the Little Monster so powerful and useful. It’s also fun to fool with, but care must be taken around computers, compasses, pacemakers, etc. It’s available for $9.95 through the Web-only business Sailor’s Solutions.
