Do You Really Need a Magnetizer?

Do You Really Need a Magnetizer?

Most mechanics and technicians know the frustration of trying to drive a screw into a tight corner just to have it fall to the floor. If this is happening to you more often than you would like, having a magnetic screwdriver comes in handy. A magnetic-tipped screwdriver can be really useful, but most of the time the magnet makes the tip attached to other things besides the head of the screw, causing more frustration. Also, there’s no need to buy a set of pre-magnetized tools as you can have your own magnetic screwdriver for free just by getting an affordable magnetizer and demagnetizer tool. We’re going to discuss how these tools work so that you can pick the best set for the job.

How A Magnetizer Works 

How a Demagnetizer Works

Most magnetic boosters in the market work in the same way; by manipulating the electrons in steel. This process is able to turn any nonmagnetic tool into a magnetic one so in this case, a magnetic field is added to the screwdriver tip so that it attracts and sticks to other objects that contain iron. As magnetizers only respond to a magnetic field the magnetic result will be temporary.

How A Demagnetizer Works

This process is also very simple; It exposes a tool to an opposite or irregular magnetic field, manipulating the electrons within the tool to change and become misaligned. As a result, it eliminates any magnetism in the screwdriver tip.

Screwdriver Magnetizer Material

The magnets in magnetizing and demagnetizing tools are mostly made of ceramic or neodymium rare earth magnets. Both have their fair share of benefits; ceramic magnets are strong and also resistant to demagnetization caused by outside fields. However, neodymium magnets are the most powerful of all permanent magnets, by being able to lift more compared to any other magnet of the same size. These Olsa Tools magnetizer and demagnetizer rings are made of rare earth magnets, their magnetic strength increases by up to 10 times, meaning that the magnetism in your screwdriver bits remains longer than those magnetic boosters made of ceramic. Have the peace of mind that you won’t drop any of your fasteners!
