Hehe, I used a magnet from the inside of a hard drive and attached it to a wire, those magnets are very strong and kept sticking to every thing in there. It was about 1 month after starting my headgasket and was just nearing completion. The day it dropped in, the neighbours would have had their peace interupted.

Vik...more so when my sockets kept snapping on headbolts.
