Jack's video was an inspiration to me because I seem to always have small bits of wood scattered around the floor by my band saw. The wood on the floor interferes with moving the saw around the shop by jamming the wheels of my mobile base.

|Instead of a wooden box I tried holding|
a shopping bag on with magnets.
|The magnets weren't strong enough through the bag material, |
so I attached the hooks that came with the magnets and
made a modification to the bag.
|I glued a strip of wood inside the bag and then drilled holes|
through the bag and the wood strip.
The arrangement with the wood strip supports the bag on the hooks and the hooks make it easy to lift off and empty.
In the video Jack shows taking the scrap box to his table saw. My table saw is a contractors saw with an aluminium top.
I bought these magnets at a local surplus store. When I bought the ten pack I was pretty sure that I would never find uses for all of the magnets. Now it appears that I will have used all ten magnets up in just a couple of weeks.
