A friend made this during his lunch hour. I was more than a bit surprised to get it!

Solid aluminum block with magnets.

Those look great. Depending on how strong those magnets are, Id add little cuts of very thin neoprene foam tape if you have any. This will prevent the block from slipping on the machine bed, and add a great deal of hold. You just need 1/16.
