Super Magnets for Steel Work Tables

Putting a reloading bench together. The press will be bolted down.
What about using magnets for the powder measure and trimmer? Then I could position them exactly where needed. Bolting down or clamping is a possibility, but I don't want a bunch of holes in my table top, or work around c clamps. Plus I'm always changing things.

Would the Super magnets mess with any reloading scales ?... or de-magnetize your Credit cards ?

Just food for thought, otherwise I like the idea.

Someone invented a magnet that works on brass?

Scale is a beam scale. It would be within reach of the dispenser for QC.
A few demagnetized credit cards would be a side benefit.
No progress on the brass magnet, but the trouble magnet is working great!

Thanks from Phil McGrath

Beam scales use a magnet to dampen oscillations. It could affect the accuracy of the reading.
