These magnets are awesome!
I use them for numerous things, gluing them to flashlights so they won't rattle in a car.
Glued one on a old fine paint brush to sweep off my keyboard on my computer, storing it on a file cabinet in the room. Hold a piece of metal to be welded on a vehicle.
But the glue utilized must be strong, for the first stuff I used, the magnet tore loose from the flashlight. I use JB Weld-minute weld epoxy.
This lead holder is visually very similar to the MUCH more expensive Rotring 600 2mm lead holder. It is all- metal, and is very nice to work with. The internal lead tube appears to be brass. The finish, however, is delicate. Very easy to scratch. But since this is a professional tool and not jewelry, that doesn't really matter. Especially at this price. I bought a bunch!
