Eastwood Stitch Weld Magnets
If you have ever tried to weld a patch panel into a spot where you can’t access the back side, these rare earth magnets are a life saver. These nickel plated super strong magnets come 8 to a package, and each one measures just 1/2 inch (12.7mm) in diameter, but are strong enough to support several pounds. Place them every few inches at the edge of your panels and you can position the panel with no gap, or the perfect gap for whichever welding method you are using. Use a few of these magnets and never feel like you need 3 hands again.
Super strong magnets hold patch panels in place from the outside, perfect for blind repairs.

They may be small, but they are mighty
I haven't used them for their intended purpose yet, but I have used them to aid in placement and aligning of weld-in louvers on my car's hood, and two of them can hold an 18 x 7 piece of 20 gage steel without so much as a whimper. Couple of things to be wary of. They state in the directions that they are brittle and will chip if allowed to come together with any force. They aren't kidding. I wasn't careful and allowed two to get too close to each other and they snapped together with enough force to chip one. Also, keep them in the box when you are not using them. I left one out on the bench while I did some fine tuning with a grinder, and it collected every metal filing within a foot. I now have a magnetic Chia Pet covered in metal chips and they are a bugger to remove. If you follow the instructions, store them carefully and use as intended, they are a great product.
Strong little magnets.
I bought a package of magnets three weeks ago. When I opened them I was surprised on how strong they are. In showing my daughter some of them snapped together and a couple of them chipped. That was disappointing. If thinking of product improvement, think of some kind of covering that would prevent chipping. Otherwise, these are strong enough to hold any panel in place until it is welded. I am happy that I bought them and will probably buy more for larger panels.
Many Many Uses
I bought 2 sets of these a month ago they are the best magnets I have ever used, I run the fabrication department in a very large restoration shop and everybody wants to borrow them all the time! I have used them for so many different jobs, I'm going to buy a couple more sets just to have more on hand and the price is GREAT.
Don't let them touch!!!!!
I've used other magnets. I never will again. I will buy more of thes magnets. But don't let them close to each other. They snap together and are tricky to get apart. So I've stuck them all over the face of my toolbox. When I need one I get one. Great product for any restoration project
Small size, Big power
These may be small in size, but they are super, super strong in magnetic power. I recently used just one to hold a 2 square inch patch in the hinge support area of a truck hood. There was no room for a clamp so this magnet was perfect. Highly recommend for small panel welds.
Excellent holding power
I haven't used these yet for the intended purpose (holding panels to mig weld), but needed some magnet power for a couple of other purposes. Do they hold? You bet they do! In fact, I had to wrestle a bit to get them where I wanted them to be.
Just got them so I haven't used them much yet. they are super strong. very surprised at the holding strength. Be careful not to let them bang around against each other because the chrome plating will chip off. I found out the hard way.
