So up until today my magnet organizational system was “put them somewhere that isn’t too close to the others” so they wouldn’t ball up into a finger-pinchy mess.
Today I went to Home Depot and spent 3$ on a nice big steel bar:
Devised a 2 layer mounting bracket and screwed it onto the workbench. No more magnet mess.
At that height, just watch your wallet. If your credit cards are in a front pocket, you might wipe out the magnetic strip if you lean over a magnet to get to the GF.
My GF table is from Ikea and has a couple metal legs…
Generally you need a fast moving (changing) magnetic field to scramble a card. I suppose it is possible but it’s pretty unlikely. Most of my cards are chipped anyway so no worries there.
Yeah, my wallet (money clip) has a magnet in it. No problems with my cards for years.
Yeah on top of that, either you underestimate how tall my workbench is, or you overestimate how tall I am My wallet doesn’t really hit anywhere near that bar. Thanks for looking out though!
