Anyone who has done electronics repair knows how irritating lost screws
can be—if you’re lucky, you’ll end up with a slightly lighter laptop. If
you’re unlucky, your $1,000 laptop will be brought to its knees by a
$0.05 clip hiding under a table leg. Designed by fixers, for fixers, the
8”x10” Magnetic Project Mat solves this repair problem. Spacious and
secure, the mat will catch screws as you pull them out of a device and
hold them there.
Use it as a workmat during cell phone repairs, and you’ll be able to
stop worrying about screw tracking and focus on the cell phone; All the
screws will be right where you left them. For laptops with up to
hundreds of screws, use the whole mat as a screw guide and keep careful
notes to not get lost. It will serve you as a dutiful partner, and you
will lose fewer screws.
The pen is made by Staedtler, the German pen company that makes
top-of-the-line artists’ pens and pencils, as well as the expensive
precision pens architects use for blueprints. Their Lumocolor
Correctable pen doesn’t smear or wipe away like most dry erase markers.
If you brush your hand across the mat while performing a repair, the ink
doesn’t scratch or smear. But the eraser tip or a dry cloth erases the
ink clean every time.
