    In Aerospace, we use high tack polyester tape to pick up chips left behind on benches, etc. I’ve also used a Neodymium/Iron Boride magnet on the bottom of a test tube/sample jar to remove metal flakes for later analysis, magnets work a treat for iron filings.

      There is a new invention called a Shop Vacuum. It will even pick up non magnetic materials. Give on a try…;)
