    Both of my medium sized FAT Nogas hold well on vertical surfaces but I have to be selective about where it goes on painted cast iron. If there is just paint then fine but where there is also a layer of Bondo it does not hold enough.

    Storing the bases on a steel surface with the base ON is supposed to preserve the magnets better.

    Oh? I would have thought that Noga at least would be using neodymium magnets. Alnico and ferrite magnets do benefit from a "keeper".

    I have a Noga w/ base and it holds very well and takes some effort to pry it loose when activate. Perhaps you have a defective base?

    My mid sized Noga base holds better than any of my others from across the Pacific. Here's a list of what Noga says their bases are supposed
    to do. One N (newton) is about .25 pounds of force. So my M8 base should require about 200 pounds of force to pull it off. That force would
    be applied in a direction just opposite of the base, no pulling to side.

    Sorry the model number would be DG0036. (The M8 is the thread size)
