OWWWWW i got mine today, consider yourself blessed. I've only been on lunch 20 minutes and am bleeding out of both thumbs. These things are intense. I got them out of the very meticulous packaging and started playing with them. So i sit in the bath room seeing what they stick to, and go to put them back together and CLACK which is immediately followed by a #*@&! A 1/4 inch chunk of my thumb is smashed in between. So after using a butter knife to get them apart which ended up just sliding the magnets apart with a chunk of my thumb in there still. Just to show you the power i decided to take a pic of my nasty thumb with triple antibiotic with tetracaine already applied:


With that said and done i put a bandaid over it, wiped off the one that had my blood on it and went to CAREFULLY put them back together..... and again...

You seriously have to be careful, they are really powerful. I could lift a 10 pound dumbell with them with ease. the 30 pound dumbell i couldn't get a good enough grip on them but they weren't budging.

I warned you!! j/k That looks like it hurt!

The instructions I received with the order advised to wear gloves. This is why. Remember that picture I posted above of my finger getting pinched over a week ago? MY FINGER STILL LOOKS THE SAME!

After a week of driving, I'll be checking tonight to see if all 8 magnets are where I put them on the pans.


2 people down, 7 to go......I told you I shipped 'em! lol Pete, don't expect yours until....maybe Mother'* Day.
