Have you ever ended up ripping open a wall because you just couldn’t get the fish tape to the right place? You tried again and again, guessing where the damn tape leader was by sound and feel, but just couldn’t direct it where you needed it to go. B.E.S. Manufacturing aims to stop this insanity with the Magnafish.
This nifty tool makes a fish tape look so 20th century. With powerful magnets it allows you to direct a magnetic leader through wall cavities rather than trying to push the long flexible fish tape. And you can actually feel the magnet through the wall, so you know the leader’s location exactly.
To use the Magnafish system, you drop the rare-earth magnet leader through a 7/8″ hole, then capture it with a paddle magnet. Move the paddle magnet toward the opening, then extract the leader and attach your cable or wire. I can’t find any information about whether you can direct the leader from a hole in the floor up the wall, though.
Magnafish runs about $90 — but think of the time you’ll save not tearing the wall a new one in your frustration.
