No matter how much you sweep or vacuum the shop, there's always a few little metal slivers that stay on the floor, only to find their way into the wife, kids or dogs bare feet, leading to a Dr. visit and Tetanus shot if it's deep enough.

Here's a little homemade redneck remedy I came up with, since my dogs are always out in the garage with me, and I don't want a vet bill.

Go buy a roll of that cheap peel and stick shelf liner paper at Wal-mart. Cut a piece off, peel the back off, and roll it backwards around a large paint roller so the sticky side is out. Put the roller on the handle, screw a broom stick or pole into the end, and roll up the little hidden pieces. Works like a charm... Very Happy

Good idea! I also have an old car speaker with a big magnet that I have hung from a piece of cord that i can "sweep" the floor with too.

If anyones interested I can check and see who the manufacturer was of a gift from my wife. It's a magnet about 12" wide with wheels and a long handle so you can roll it along the floor and pick up any metal and it has a release to drop off whatever it's picked up.

Tractor Supply Company has a magnet on wheels that sells for less than $30

You could make an electromagnet from old AC compressor clutch magnets.
