I was just given some Mag Switches. These are the yellow magnets the are turned on and off by the top switch.
They are strong magnets, but I am not sure what to do with them. Anyone use these? Is there some kind of jig I can make to use these. Right now I use them attached to my steel tool box, and hang my shop apron from them.

i use them for fixing the resaw fence on my bandsaw, so i don’t need to bother with clamping it to the table.
i also keep my sacrificial table on my drill press on with them. so i don’t get an arc of shame in the casting.

Make a feather board, drill holes in it then put the mags in the holes and use on your tablesaw, band saw, etc
