Magnetic sweeper

Image Number 3 for United States Patent #6142310.

The magnetic sweeper of this invention includes a laterally elongated hollow body of non-magnetic material having an open top and containing a pair of laterally spaced permanent magnets. The elongated side walls of the body have outwardly extending flanges slidably receiving a pair of covers of non-magnetic material for the magnets, and the covers have outer downturned ends facing the closed end walls of the body. An opening in each downturned end removably receives a wheel axle having an enlarged end captured between the body end wall and the adjacent downturned end of the cover, and interengaging detents on the body and each cover secures the cover removably to the body. A wheel is mounted rotatably on each axle and a handle extends from the body member for manipulating the sweeper over a surface to be swept of metallic objects.
