Default Magnetic mat - anyone using one they really like?

I have magnetic trays that I got at the auto parts store many moons ago. But think I would really befit from having a magnetic mat on my bench. So I did an internet search and there are a lot of options available.

I have a magnetic pick-up tool that I have had for dropping things under the car when working on the car. It is pretty strong, can pick up a couple of pounds and has about a 3 ft long handle. As use it to pick up dropped nails and screws on the garage floor. Better than finding a flat tire.

I saw these and thought it might be handy to have
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...86E89D0ZN&th=1

Sometimes I have springs, pins, screws, e-clips and other small parts spread from hell to breakfast trying to keep them straight in my mind. Then they get disturbed and I have a heck of a time sorting them out.

JD, thanks for the link - indeed that looks handy! Just a note, according to Amazon, the S-140 & the S-130 are identical in size, yet the S-130 is $4 cheaper.

I was confused about that too. One is magnetic and the other not.

flyrod:

a magnet requires the object to be ferrous steel.

They will NOT pick up brass that primers are made of.

It's not magnetic, years ago I was doing gun and stock
fitting on the expensive dining table quite a bit.
Knew I'd better get some protection on it. The local
industrial supply house sells a black neoprene gasket
material in various thickness's 60" wide. High priced
stuff. I got a piece 2 feet x the width, seems like i was $35.
I donated another big piece to Kevin Weaver for his work table
covered with carpet filled with junk, gunk and metal bits.
Later he said some of the chemicals he uses softened it.
Nearly $50 worth!! I told him to just wipe it off before it
damages the sheet. Or roll it up before using the stuff.

What I got was 1/8" thick. It's perfect for my needs. I don't use
such chemicals in the house. It wipes off real easy and clean with
a damp paper towel.

JD, I hate that you got me interested in this because now I want/need one! LOL

I'm beginning to think the "magnetic" feature is not that important. Nothing is going to roll around too much on a silicon mat especially if it has "compartments". I'm surprised there are not hybrid mats with magnetic compartments & regular work surfaces.

Thanks for posting!

So I take it youíve got a Rockchucker too.

Iíve got a Co-Ax that handles spent primers fabulously and have had it for forty years. But I still use my Rockchucker II about half the time and always have

I found and bought a set up for my rock chucker about 3 years back, some guy make various ones for presses, by that computer forming system.
It works great and catches the primers into a tube at the bottom of the unit.
Trying to find who, so some can see what it is and check it out.
