    English is a funny language, particular when it comes to the use of multiple adjectives.
    When I saw your heading I misinterpreted it as "Magnetic Chuck" Key Holder instead of Magnetic "Chuck Key" Holder. That wouldn't happen in some languages.

    My favourite example comes from Sheb Woolly's classic song "The purple people eater". Is he someone who eats purple people, or is he purple and eats people. That is my favourite all time song, they don't write them like that anymore.

    Hi Captain
    Found the magnets now I need to find the chuck key. (Only joking). Works a treat thank you again for posting such a simple cure to a well-known problem in my shop. Any other tips to help me from putting things down in the workshop and losing them?

    I am finally learning that everything has a place and if you ALWAYS return the item to its place you can find it easily instead of looking around
    scratching your head wondering where in hell did I put that thing, sometimes for hours or the next day.

    Paint your most frequently displaced tools a nice shade of electric pink. There's very little pink in the average home shop so a quick scan will focus you onto the lost bits.

    I would recommend that you put the pink tools away before inviting your pub-mates to the shop for a visit. On the other hand, being caught fondling your pink micrometer might motivate you to develop the discipline to put your tools away. :-)
