8. Bi-folding Doors
Most modern homes will come with bi-folding doors, but several of our customers have got in touch with questions about ways to keep their doors held together when they are open and folded.
The solution is our rubber coated countersunk magnets, which are great for outdoor applications as the rubber coating protects the magnet from corrosion and provides a soft impact when the doors fold into each other, protecting the doors from knocking against each other.
9. Anvil Silencer
If you enjoy a spot of blacksmithing or are looking at taking up the hobby then this magnetic hack is essential. See how using a magnet can help silence the ringing noise produced by an anvil when hit.
Traditionally blacksmiths have used metal chains wrapped around the anvil to help silence the loud ringing noise, however by using a smaller, lighter and cheaper magnet you can get the same results very easily.
