Magnetism Through Gold

Most recent answer: 04/19/2017

Came across this page and I hope that I can get a quick answer to my question. I have read the page and my question is slightly different. I am looking at getting a masonry trowel gold plated for an employee. I was wondering if a magnet will attract thru the gold to the steel inside? If not then I have to come up with a different mounting system.ThanksConrad

The gold will have almsot no effect on the magnetism of the steel, so you're in luck. So's your employee, assuming he or she wants a gold-plated trowel.
