Big magnets...not to be trifled with...

This happened at work once (on a smaller scale). It wasn't pretty. $5000 to remove a metal handle from the N2 valve that bounced straight into a Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Magnet. The Dr down the hall is built like a linebacker but he couldn't pry it off. Can't turn off the magnet, you have to quench it, destroying it. No good.
