    2 family mechanics na ang na deads without any symptoms of whatsoever and we attribute it to long exposure to auto chemicals including oil. With the oils full of additives and detergents who knows what kinds of harmful elements are there pero sa SMDS data sheet may warning na rin dun to avoid contact. As most doctors would say also, kahit rubbing alcohol when absorbed by the skin would end up in the liver.

    The nitrile gloves are re-usable if properly cleaned with joy diswashing liquid.

    Also they invest on torque wrench for the correct torque of sump plug, some fluted oil wrenches for easy removal of cartridges, and boxes of tissue to wipe clean excess oil.

    No offense, at $35, those are probably the most expensive magnets I've ever seen.

    We purposely point the north pole of the magnet toward the oil in all our magnets. We have special proprietary reasons for doing so. The new Super Black Hole has a patent pending for using both sides of the magnet to one side, doubling the effective strength.
    It must work like a PowerBalance bracelet for your car.

    Just get the magnets from Lazada. They have 2 x 1 cm rectangular Neodymium magnets for like under P400 for 10 pcs. It can be shared between 2 to 3 cars.

    I think that the Dimple oil filter magnets are a scam. Even without magnets, the oil filter is already trapping dirt down to a certain micron and the engine will last long even with just oil and filter changes. Adding magnets may help a bit on the filterís dirt carrying capacity but to spend $35 on them when there are cheaper alternatives?

    I am not saying itís not doing anything. Iím saying that itís too expensive for the amount of work it is doing. Even if what Dimple claims is true about how powerful and heat-resistant their magnets are, then just put 10 Lazada Neodymium magnets on your filter and you only have to spend just a little over $7.... 1/5 the price of the Dimple oil filter magnets.

    If youíre already using Dimple products, congrats. I guess youíre more well off than I am. As for me, I donít think I will ever spend that much for magnets.
