“Quick Release” Magnet
Hot parts produced by plasma cutting torches are easy to pick up with this new “quick release” magnet from K-Tech, Grainfield, Kansas.
  “It can lift up to 25 lbs. of solid steel, or a little less if the parts are loose. Anyone who does any welding or metal fabrication will find it useful,” says Roger Kuntz.
  The 2-ft. long magnet comes with a foam grip metal handle with a trigger inside it. A hollow stem runs from the handle down to a large 5-in. dia. magnet contained in a pvc housing with an aluminum base. A plunger runs from the trigger down through the stem to the magnet. When you pull the trigger, the magnet pulls away from the base and the object drops off.
  “We came up with the design because many farmers are now using plasma cutting torches which cause material to get much hotter,” says Kuntz.
  The company also offers an 8-in. long quick-release magnet that works the same way. Both models sell for $45 apiece plus $5 S&H.
