MagSwitch is the name we first associate switchable magnets and their use in jigs and fixtures, but it looks like Chestnut Tools want to give them a bit of competition. And what better way to kick things off then with a buy one get one free deal from Lee Valley?

Actually I am only telling you a half truth. The latest bits from Lee Valley will give you a square hole and does use a drill, but there is more to the story.
