Thread: Tool retrievial

Dropped 10mm wrench into hull & went straight under engine into the "well of no return".Could'nt be reached by hand or the "JC!" tool.
So I placed 2 powerful ND magnets @ the bottom of hull in the general vicinity of wrench in well & pulled wrench right out of the "well"

Out of interest, I was watching a local mechanic working on our ski. He had a piece of string attached to all his small spanners and tied the onther end to the engine lift eye. When he dropped the spanner, he could retriev it easily. I thought that was a good idea!

Yep the magnet is a great idea, good job.

I took the magnet off of the little bowl to hold your nuts and bolts that came with my socket kit and tied it to a string. That thing will pick up a whole tool box...

This is what I use.http://s7.sears.com/is/image/Sears/0...0&op_sharpen=1 It has a magnet that can hold 5 pounds and it also has a light at the end for those dark areas underneath the engine. I use it in conjunction with a mirror.

You mean to tell me that I didn't need to pull out the engine?
