"Strong Hand Tools Mini-Magnet Twin Pack, Model# MS346AT"
Smaller than I thought, but good.
I know they had the dimensions in the product description and I could have more carefully considered my purchase with a tape measure in hand, but I didn't. So, I got magnetic holders that were smaller than I expected.
With the exception of that (which is arguably my fault anyway) these are a great product! I use them all the time in the shop for lightweight pieces, and LOVE the 30/60 degree option.

the clamps are just OK not to much holding power but they work.

A third hand for welding.
These magnets help keep my projects lined up and they can handle the heat. I have used my set several times and they still are in good condition. They maybe small, but they do fit into most areas that I need them.

While these may be too small for some larger pieces of steel, they are perfect for 90% of the home welding jobs you will encounter. Strong magnets for their size, easy to weld around.

Great for small projects.
I purchased these as well once I purchased my Hobart Handler 187 for fabricating little brackets. They work very well and dont bend the metal when removing them from very thin sheet metal.

Good for small stuff
These magnets aren't the strongest available, but they are helpful with smaller pieces. They aren't the first ones that I reach for, but the multiple available angles come in handy at times.

A little weak for holding steel round stock
We bought these to hold 3/8" round stock, to weld some small pieces together. They're not very strong, and don't hold this type of metal very well. They may work better for thinner sheet metal, as others have said, but not too great for thicker steel.
I do like that depending on which side you stick to the metal you're working on, it provides different angles, i.e. one side is 45*, one is 60*, one is 90*. That did help with the project I'm working on.

Good for the $
They are a little smaller than what I was expecting and the magnets are not very strong, but work well for sheet metal and other lighter weight materials.

They are handy to have around, but I also recommend that one has a larger, stronger set as well. I use these with lighter material, or when fitting small gussets to tack weld. It is nice that they are not so strong that you can't get them loose. I use the point end of a chipping hammer in the finger hole to keep from burning my fingers, or when wearing heavy welding gloves.
