Magnet in a Bag
Cleaning up metal shavings around a drill press will almost always get you a metal sliver or two. Using a magnet works fine, but it's no fun to get all those shavings off the magnet. Instead, put the magnet inside a plastic bag that's turned inside out. Now you can attract the shavings to the bag, seal it and pull it free, and throw them away without touching a single shaving.
