Magnet strength to hold tools question
I built a case to house my sharpening stuff and I recessed out the lid to store my straight edge, DMT sharpening stones and some other related tools.
I ordered some rare earth magnets from eBay that I was going to glue in to secure the tools from falling when I close the lid. But when I received them they were so small that there is no way they are going to hold anything.
So I found some 25mm x 2mm Round Rare Earth Magnets and Iím just wondering how many will I need to hold everything in place. The heaviest tool is my 24" straight edge which weighs almost 3 pounds.
So anybody have any experience with these magnets?
I was going to use some sort of clips and then I found the magnets.
Iím a die hard DIY guy. Donít tell me to hire someone for what I can do myself.
