    Chad's new Crappy Corner Theme for February as picked by our loyal Patreon members! 

    Our loyal Patreons voted and they picked “Cheap Garage Gadgets” as Chad's Theme for February. Chad's first cheap gadget is the Empire Mag Clean Magnetic Pick Up.

    Chad bought his at Home Depot, and here's a bit of what they say about it: The Empire 40 in. Black and Silver adjustable Magnetic Clean Sweep feature a rolling design and an adjustable head. The clean sweep has an aluminum shaft that can be extended to 40 in. Adjustable angle. The 11-1/2 in. magnetic head provides more coverage. Lifts nails, screws, nuts, bolts and small machined parts.

    And Chad's take? He liked it. He thought it picked up magnetic screws, nails, clips, etc. very quickly and gathered quite a few of them in one sweep. The adjustable handle was good too because it folded down for easy storage. Chad thought it was a bit on high side price wise- he paid almost $29.00 at Home Depot. Of course if you do a web search you can most likely find it a bit cheaper.

    It's also here on Amazon for about $29.00: https://amzn.to/2SJFxDf
