6 small magnet application examples in the workshop

Our customer often works in his workshop, so he created 6 small magnet application examples in the workshop that we would like to share with you.

For me, these are always objects that I use frequently and therefore want to be within easy reach of the application.

6 small magnet application examples in the workshop

1. Folding rule on miter stop

The folding rule is arranged with 2 ringmagnets Ø 14.0 x 4.5 x 4.5 mm N35 nickel with countersunk always ready to hand on the top of the miter fence. To mount the magnets in the aluminum profile, I introduced two M3 threads.

2. Earmuffs

The earmuffs always hang directly above the machine in use on the ceiling support. Blockmagnets 20.0 x 20.0 x 3.0 mm N45 nickel – M3 countersunk hole were used. In addition to the thread (M3), the magnet is glued to the hearing protection with superglue.

3. Hand brush

The hand brush hangs with a ringmagnet Ø 20.0 x 4.0 x 7.0 mm N35 nickel – holds 7.8 kg above the drilling table on the ceiling support.

4. Bevel board

My bevel board has bevels on 8 edges from 0.5 mm to 4 mm, each increasing by 0.5 mm. This means that I can spontaneously select a suitable bevel. Also set it directly on the table router (auxiliary jig). My board hangs on a deck support directly above the milling machine. The ringmagnet Ø 20.0 x 4.0 x 7.0 mm N35 nickel – holds 7.8 kg and is flush with the board. The easiest way to do this is with a guided drill (drill stand / bench drill) and a suitable Forstner drill.

5. Wood lathe protective board

The protective board protects the bench bed from soiling when treating surfaces (staining, oiling, painting) directly on the lathe. I already use it when sanding and I also put down the abrasive cloth pieces and felt there. The rear stop on the board is also helpful so that nothing falls down. Thanks to the wooden strip mounted on the underside that lies in the middle of the bench bed and the flush magnet (diameter 20 mm with screw hole), the whole thing can be quickly and easily put on and removed. When I’m not using it, it hangs on the ceiling beam above the lathe.

6. Japanese saw

My most common tool for small chop cuts is my Japanese ryoba saw. This hangs on a ringmagnet (diameter 20 mm with screw hole) always on the side of the drill cabinet.
