DIY Magnetic Storage Box

Looking after your tools is important, they are a man’s best friend when it comes to DIY and could you imagine anything worse than losing, misplacing or potentially breaking your best friend. Well, Gavin couldn’t and has got in touch to show us how he is safely and correctly storing his tools using magnets.

Having purchased some thin steel precision rulers from INCRA Precision Tools, Gavin decided due to their thin metal structure, to keep them safe, it would be sensible to create a storage box for each ruler.

After creating the wooden cases, Gavin decided to add our 4mm dia x 3mm thick N42 Neodymium Magnet with 0.54kg Pull to his storage box, the small but strong magnets are ideal for model-making, crafts and many other applications.

Using the small high-performance Neodymium magnets Gavin has been able to securely hold each ruler whilst also creating a secure way of opening and closing each case.

We would like to thank Gavin for sharing his application with us. If you are currently working on a project or could use some advice, our team would love to hear from you! Contact our experts on 0845 519 4701 or email today.
