Home-Made Magnetic Wall Calendar
We always appreciate our customers getting in touch to show us the creative way they are using our magnets, and one customer has shown us their homemade calendar using our magnets.
Steve began with a 9mm piece of ply and a 0.75mmm thick piece of steel, 800mm x 500mm in size. The calendar template was simply printed from his PC and covered in plastic before being stuck to the steel.
Now with a calendar template, Steve was able to use some 11.5 aluminum strips for the days of the month which are held on using five magnets each. Steve has also used the magnets to hold onto the months and events throughout the year.
He has also painted some magnets green and red to denote his days off and holidays.
This calendar idea has been brought to life using our Y10 Ferrite Magnets. These ferrite disc magnets, also known as ceramic magnets, are magnetized with a striped north-south polarity which focuses the magnetism on one face.
Ferrite magnets have a high resistance to corrosion and demagnetization and their great advantage is that they can operate in temperatures of up to 180 degrees Celsius.
We would like to thank Steve for getting in touch and sharing his story with us. If you are currently working on a project or could use some advice, our team would love to hear from you!
