It worked! I bent one 6-32 rod because I was too impatient to wait for my wife to finish chores and help. Once she was there to crank the nut down as I held the magnet in alignment, things went pretty well. Several magnets are really scuffed up, but the job is done and maybe something like this can be painted.

In all the fiddling around, I have now magnetized three screwdrivers, a c-clamp, a pipe clamp, a wrench, several lengths of threaded rod, one pair of pliers, and a pair of wire cutters!
