With strong neodymium magnets, you can store your tongs in no time at all.
In the case of a Bosch Professional L-Boxx 102 tool case, the lid was fitted with a 6.5 mm wooden plate and covered with foam rubber.
The blockmagnet 20.0 x 20.0 x 3.0 mm N45 nickel – M3 countersunk hole were then screwed on with countersunk screws.
In the middle of this magnet has a 3.5 mm hole with countersunk for an M3 screw so that you can screw on the magnet.
Use in pairs is not possible. The North Pole is always on the subsidence side. The magnets repel each other.
So that the neodymium magnets do not break or splinter, simply sink the magnets into the workpiece and protect the raw magnet from direct hits.
So that the magnets are invisible, the magnets could also be attached under the foam rubber.
For larger objects you should use several magnets. Also stronger like the blockmagnet 60.0 x 20.0 x 4.0 mm N35 nickel with 2 countersunk holes.
This block magnet made of neodymium with two 4.5 mm countersunk holes and nickel coating. This flat magnet (height 4 mm) can be screwed onto components or non-magnetic surfaces with two countersunk screws.
You can use several variants as a screw. Slotted screws with countersunk head for wood, machine screws, countersunk screws with Torx or hexagon socket are suitable.
The top diameter for the screw head is: 9.46 mm.
