Magnets that stick instead of suck
Impress your friends with your practicality and taste
I made a bunch of these to use around the shop for holding part prints while machining stuff. Then I ended up taking some home for the fridge to replace all the garbage magnets littering the door. They work as good as they look!
We decided to make up a few in my trademark Electroless Nickel and also solid brass. Magnet force is about 4 lbs. on the neodymium N42 magnets so you can't lift a truck, but they will sure hold up a few sheets of paper or photos of your kid. Really though, 4 lbs is plenty for normal duty and they attach with a satisfying thunk...like a BMW car door.
