I will reveal my secret magnet source – Harbor Freight. They sell a pair of magnetic hooks for usually $4.99 with a 20% discount coupon. The package says they have 65 lbs of pull. I believe it! They come back-to-back with a piece of foam in between. Be careful when you take them apart. If you get your thumb pinched between them you can get a pretty nasty blood blister. DAMHIKT. Simply drill out the hooks (1/4” drill) and attach with bolts or screws to whatever you want to hold. I’ve used them all over my shop. I have 3 of them holding a 2’ x 2’ pegboard under my cast iron table saw wing with ALL my table saw accessories hanging on it. They are strong, cheap, and reliable.
