That is one of the brushes for the motor. You need to get a new brush and retainer for it...hopefully you didnt mess up anything else, stop using it till you get it repaired.

What are rasps how are they different from other saws?

Rasps are used if you want to shave off small pieces of drywall, like if the line you cut isn't perfectly straight. Other saws are used more for cutting peices in half or cut out shapes. Make sure you wear a mask because rasping makes a lot of dust!

I have a Bell F12 Bike computer. After hitting a bump, the magnet fell out of the plastic housing mounted to the spole. Where can I get a replacemnt magnet? The unit is relatively new so I prefer not to...

Any magnet will work... modify a refrigerator magnet and superglue it to the plastic housing. Some of them are soft enough to cut or sand to a specific shape. As long as you get the magnet close enough to the sensor even a weaker magnet should work just fine, but starting with a good strong magnet will make everything easier. Good luck!

Chain has a rattling noise but has lots of oil.

I would start by closely inspecting the chain bar. Make sure it is not warped,bent,or twisted even slightly.Look for any dents or burrs in guide channel and make sure gear teeth on the end are in good shape. Slight burrs can be filed smooth with small flat file and minor dents canbe straightened with needle nose pliers then touched up with a file.If you find any problems other then minor replace the bar.
Check chain over carefully making sure that all drive tangs are in good shape,not bent,chipped,or exccessivily worn.
Most importantly make sure your chain is properly tensioned. The way I do it is once I've made sure the chain and bar are in good shape I tighten the chain snugly with saw at operating temperature. Check to make sure chain rotates freely and restart saw and run at high R.P.M.s for 30-45 seconds. Shut off saw and wearing gloves grip chain at mid point of bar and lift saw. I try to get enough clearance to slip a nickle between bottom of drive tang and top of bar. tighten bar retaining nuts and run saw for several mins. and check again. Hope this helps you and thanks.

Take a magnet on a rod, with electrical tape wrap on it(just one wrap) and try to see if a small spoon or something fell in to it. My wedding ring fell in to mine, this is how I got it out, talk about chewed up. Please ensure to unplug it before do this!!

if it's a small rectangular magnet that appears, in our case, fell out, when you add detergent, softener, etc...the magnet goes on the right hand bottom corner of the drawer face, straight up and down, not sideways. this is evidently some type of sensor allowing the washer to start. we had an error code of "ddo" when the magnet fell out.
