Default Magnetic fingers and gloves

I saw 2 guys garage using these one Speedtv today and knew I needed a set. Many a times this would have come in handy. Especially on the manifold/downpipe area.

Thought I would share with you guys. Anyone already have them?

Would be cooler if they were still rubber tipped, but magnetic. Magnetized rubber FTW....

They held a flat washer, lock washer, and a nut on one tip. It held all 3 peices of hardware while he moved his hand around. You can now put everything on at once with 1 or 2 fingers. You eliminate your thumb and gain access to even harder to reach places. I can think of a couple instances where I would saved some time by using one.

I'd say the next step is gloves with super magnets. Then I can add climbing metal buildings to my skill list.

As common as those little high energy magnets are I'd be suprised if they didn't use them.
