Magnetic Life Hacks

Testing for Fake Silver and Gold with Magnets

Neodymium magnets are very strong and can help to test the authenticity of gold and silver bars, coins, bullion, or jewelry. However, it is important to note that this method is not foolproof. How It Works Gold and silver are not considered ferromagnetic due to their lack of iron, nickel, and cobalt. With that said, if a neodymium magnet is attracted to the gold or silver, that means that it contains trances of other metals and is not pure.  However, this test is not entirely foolproof. For example, if the item is made from aluminum or copper, it will also not be attracted to a neodymium magnet.  Additionally, some fake jewelry may...

Finding Nails in Wood with Neodymium Magnets

Magnets can be used to find nails in hardwood floors or reclaimed wood by detecting the presence of metal beneath the surface.  By moving a magnet over the wood surface and paying close attention to the areas where the magnet is more strongly attracted, it is possible to locate metal objects that may be hidden. In the case of nails, the magnet will be attracted to the metal nail and can help locate it beneath the surface of the wood. How do I locate metal objects in wood? To use a strong neodymium sphere magnet to locate nails in wood, you can...

Finding Wall Studs with Magnets

Magnets can be used to find studs in walls by detecting the presence of metal objects that may be embedded in the studs. By moving a magnet along a wall and paying attention to areas where the magnet is more strongly attracted, it is possible to locate metal objects that may be hidden underneath the surface. In the case of wall studs, whether wood or metal, these metal objects may include nails or screws that were used to secure the drywall/sheet rock or plaster to the studs. By marking the spots where the magnet is attracted and looking for a pattern...

Using Steel Disc Counters for Dungeons and Dragons

In the Dungeons and Dragons role-playing game, steel discs (or coins) are often used as counters to track various in-game resources. For example, a player might use a single steel disc to represent a character's hit points, moving the disc from one side of the table to the other as the character takes damage or is healed. Alternatively, a player might use multiple steel discs to represent different resources, such as one disc for hit points and another for spell points. Steel discs can also be used to track other in-game resources, such as treasure or equipment, and they can be...
