Magnetic Hairbrush

Metal chip removal aid

--Hairy folks have a heckuva time in the workshop, particularly when working with steel. Metal chips produced by milling, turning and grinding frequently wind up on our heads and in our pockets, shoes, etc. Most folks solve this with aid of a friend; i.e. put fingers in ears, close eyes tightly then wait for friend to blow you clean with an air hose, which is dangerous. I'm thinking that a super magnet embedded inside a plastic hairbrush would be a little safer. Aluminum and brass chips are nonmagnetic but they're also not as sharp and risky to have on board, so to speak. Steel chips tend to be jagged and curled and a good magnet might be the ticket. Removal of chips might be done with a release lever as on magnetic brooms or magnetic chucks.

       Have a cloth cover which can be pulled off along with the fragments.

       That'd be so cool, all metal workers get to wear Ku Klux Klan outfits at work, 'cept they'd come in in tie-dye, leopard-skin or Burberry...

       Ummm, I meant a cloth cover on the magnetic hairbrush. The metal fragments stick to the brush but pulling the cloth off removes the metal bits for disposal. Better than picking them off by hand one fragment at a time.
