    That's slicker than snot. The pivots on the magnets are a great idea. I'm going to make a set, but with wingnuts so you can tighten the magnets in position.

    I have a set of these: https://www.amazon.com/TRRAPLE-Magne...28M6P4AMESCC96

    Magnetig arms are rivited to body and pivoting is little tight. This actually makes them much slower to set in place and right angle. I think its better in use when hinges of the magnets are loose and pivots freely, like in the video.
    Personally i am more clamps using guy than magnets, but the video was nice and those clips works nicely too.
    Well done!
