For picking up and transferring small parts such as screws. For rearranging small parts magazines.
Especially for pointed and sharp-edged parts that you do not want to detach from the magnet with your fingers (thumbtacks, needles, Spax screws, sheet metal screws).

Hold the magnetic lifter on the parts to hold them magnetically. Press the lever to release them again. The magnet is retracted in the sleeve by pressing the lever and thus moves away from the parts until the magnetic force is no longer sufficient.

First insert the piston into the handle. Turn until recess for lever is accessible. Thread the lever into the piston. Screw the lever into the handle so that it can move (M3 screw cuts its own thread in the lever). Now screw the magnet onto the piston (M3 countersunk screw). Slide sleeve over piston and screw tight to handle.

1 M3 x 10 mm cylinder head screw
1 M3 x 10 or 16 mm countersunk screw
1 cylindrical pot magnet with countersunk hole for 3 mm, diameter between 12 and 16 mm and 5 mm height. For flatter magnets there is a washer for height adjustment available (print out if required).
