Want to be a bit closer to a super hero? Here are some useful yet interesting tricks to use a magnetic ring for some of your daily routines. Some of these useful tricks are discussed by Mikey Sklar from Holy Scrap who has mastered the use of his. 

 “Magnet rings are useful for more than just detecting the presence and shape of a magnetic field. My four latest tricks are:

1. Pickup and carry USB drives
2. Pickup and carry car keys
3. After soldering thru-hole components the cut legs fly right onto the ring, not making a mess. This one makes me feel like a super hero.
4. Finally, fans are awesome. When I put my hand near a 40W Vornado the magnetic field is intense. I can feel the fan spinning from over 12″ away”.
