Considered getting a couple of them for my work kit because they look easy to operate and would be resistant to roll-out, but figured they would wind up failing due to accumulation of ferromagnetic particles (e.g. that magnet-tipped bit driver in the toolbox that's jammed full of rust bits and requires arduous, intricate cleaning).
I've been using a mix of auto RockLocks and AM'D triacts and have had no problems with them fouling up, but the triacts are too much work for high-repetition tasks and the RockLocks could use a smoother gate action, not to mention the sacrifice of roll-out protection for convenience.
I would try out Magnetrons if they were given to me, but definitely not taking the plunge for that price.
