The demagnetizer is just as simple as expected. Inside the demagnetizer, the screwdriver is exposed to an opposite magnetic field, but with a twist. ... This is designed to create an irregular magnetic field that randomly spins the magnetic moments. The result: Any magnetic field the tool exhibits will quickly disappear. This demagnetizer is electrically powered.

When working with tools, machinists have nothing more frustrating than a tiny screw bouncing off the workbench and disappearing into a (dark) corner. This is why many tool MFG sell magnetic-tipped screwdrivers. While those are wonderful tools, it doesn’t mean the machinists need to go running off to the store for 1 new set. By using a simple demagnetizer, the machinists can make the regular old screwdrivers you already own magnetic or nonmagnetic any time you’d like.
