    Maybe he has a forge, Greenie! Even after sweeping, a magnet would catch that much, I bet, if I kicked it a yard or so!

    Справедливое замечание Филип Дэвис. Так же много мелкой стружки и от абразивных кругов, которые налипают на магнитные угольники.

    I just use my thumb and fore finger to push the crud to one corner then pinch it away from the magnet. Anything missed can be easily removed with my torch, by setting the flame to zero feather hold it near the edge of the magnet and give it a blast of the cutting oxygen. the crud will lose its attraction to a magnet at red and disintegrates as it is blown away the magnet is not hurt since the flame is always being moved in the direction, I am blowing the crud off.
    But heck there have been times I probably had nearly that much metal crud in the skin of my hands and arms or under my fingernails
