Thanks all. Hanging is probably an even easier solution...really should have thought of that before.

A while back I saw a plane till with rope loops holding on to the the front knobs. That would work for quakes. I'd prefer not to drill hang holes in my planes.

Too funny - I was thinking the reference was to drilling in the till and hanging, not drilling the planes. I don't think I could do that . . . and certainly not to that lovely 5C recently acquired from Admiral!

You might be thinking of mine Admiral.

You can magnetize steel by striking it.  

I wouldn't loose any sleep over the tiny bit of magnetization that could occur from using a magnet to hold onto the toe of the plane.  I'm not sharpening the sole of the plane.

Making some kind of little twist-toggles to slip over the plane toe instead of embedding magnets is a viable alternative.

If residual magnetism becomes a real problem and the OP feels like spending some money, get a de-gausing plate that runs off AC line voltage.  Not the little rinky-dink ones you use on screwdrivers.  A proper one like a machine shop would have.

That's the kind I have...about the size of a cigar box and operates on 120v.it comes in very handy..Easy to make a magnetizer/demagnetizer out of a coil of wire and a 12v battery.

You could hang them with boot laces. Mine are on an incline.

Rare earth magnets set into drilled pockets, holding the planes, might magnetize the metal parts. 

I think it's all hokum. I sharpen on steel plates. There are any number of sharpening media that could magnetize blades. John was smart to cut and run (abandon the magnet idea) before the thread devolved.

Hey, I think the water makes swarf stick to the cutters. It's magnetic too...... Anyone draw pictures with iron filings while sharpening?

Yup Jim, that is the concept.
