How To Magnetize The Tip Of Your Screw Driver
In many repair work, we need to have screw drivers where the tip have the magnetic effect. Yes you can use your fingers to insert the screws into the cover holes but many times the screws will landed the other way round or at the side thus making us have a hard time to tighten the screws. Placing the screw on the tip will make it easy to slot it in in the small hole especially the covers of electronic equipment.
After sometimes of using the screw driver, the magnetic effect will become weak and it no longer will hold the screw. In order to get back the magnetic effect, just stroke the shank of the screw driver with a magnet (or any other powerful magnet) in one direction a half-dozen times. The screw driver will pick up enough magnetism to hold your screw. You may also use this method on any screw driver. See the photo below:
