    Magnetic fixture for smartphone

    Hi,
    I have written a few articles on my site talking about how to use in the shop the best multipurpose tool that the modern era has given to us, I am talking about the smartphone !
    (I know, I hear some of you saying "the worst" )

    Anyway, for those who would be interested, here is a little fixture I built in order to be able to use some of its interesting capabilities :

    In this article, I link to another article I wrote talking about this amazing application that is "smart-tools".

    That's nifty! I'm using an angle finder app myself.

    Nice holder Christophe. The programmer must be a DIY guy. It's nice to see a such useful app. Definitely worth downloading.

    Yes and can be really useful.
    I even have somewhere a picture of me measuring the tilt of the Leaning Tower of Pisa with it
    More seriously, there are lots of app useful in the shop, for instance I sometimes use "Lathe tool" wjich is great for threading data for instance.
