yeah, its an awesome tool. Used to use one quite often when I worked in maintenence. You will not believe the grip that the magnet has on the steel, then flip a switch and the drill falls right off - onto your toes :D
Too bad they are pricey.

i don't think the frame is thick enough for it to stick well...and it's going to be difficult to position working sideways with it. i think they recommend at least 1/2" thick plate for it to grip enough. it'd be just as easy to use a regular drill IMO.

yeah, working on the side of something is tougher, but certainly doable. It will stick just fine to the frame. I just got thinking that if there is that waxy frame coating it might act as a lubricant and allow the drill to walk
