You will be amazed at the magnetic power of the neodymium magnets. Due to the extremely high magnetization due to the neodymium-iron-boron used, even small discs become powerful magnets. We offer our largest selection of neodymium discmagnets. The range of possible applications for the super magnets is huge. Most of our neodymium discmagnets have the magnetic poles on the two opposite circular surfaces (axial magnetization). Some magnetic discs are diametrically magnetized, recognizable by the extra picture in the product picture.
If you are looking for weaker and cheaper discmagnets, you will find them among the ferrite magnetic discs.

In principle, all you have to do is drill a hole in the key board from behind and glue the magnet in place.
To ensure that the magnetic force is sufficient, the distance between the key and the magnet should not be more than 1 – 1.5 mm.
So that the wood does not break, the remaining material thickness should not be too small.
With conventional drills, the tip of the drill is through before the hole is sufficiently deep.
A router can be used to achieve a completely flat drill base.
To do this, a hole is drilled with a Forstner bit, leaving a few millimeters of material so that the tip does not penetrate the wood.
Then the exact drill hole depth is worked out with the router with copying sleeve.
