  2. I like to go magnet fishing with my mate, he only lives down the road, between Mcdonalds and KFC

    ...and they're poles apart. Repulsive and Attractive at the same time.

  5. I've just ordered one to keep on the boat.
    Fingers crossed it will be here next week when we go away for a few days on it.
     
  6. I'm finding myself strangely drawn to this....

  7. Just been looking at them, spotted a square one which states its active on 5 sides which I thought may be better when dragging it along but then I read the shipping details

    When did they move Nottingham to Hong Kong???
     
  8. Look what mr postman gave me
    Thought it was a bit small but it just took half a hour to get it off the radiator

  9. Before long I expect to see the headlines about how magnet rationing has begun due to unprecedented demand :)

  10. Lol :D

    You're not as strong as you thought..:rolleyes:

    Is that the Nottingham in Hong Kong..?
     
  11. Best get my order in before

    a: The price of these go up due to increased demand
    b: All the water bodies are stripped of all the scrap metal

    Could we use paracord instead of rope, we have some leftover from a bundle received from what @Baysearcher gave us?

  12. Top tip.
    When not fishing, use the chassis of your bus as the magnet keeper :rolleyes:
     
  13. I didn't know silicone sealant and under sealed cardboard was magnetic

  14. Look what turned up today and is still stuck to the radiator. I to was a bit disappointed it did look a bit small. But Jesus it sticks like Sh1t.

    There's gonna be a bit of a hole in a few electricity suppliers' accounts by the looks of things!

  18. Can you see anything on their website?

    Trying to have a look to see if that's better than the Lidl offering...
     
  19. I was hoping to use paracord but I have no idea if it will be strong enough, we have a Lidl in Harborough so may have a trip out in the morning!
