juzcallmesnake posted a topic in AccessoriesI had to many loose metal items in the safe and really no room I happened on some neodymium / powerful magnets only 1/2X1/2 and 1/8th inch thick stuck against the back wall inside top or sides of your safe any metal object will remain stuck to it until you pull it off. So there is no need to waste shelf space and they stay stuck to the wall and not the item larger stronger can hold a rod place them and spray glue a thin sheet of leather so it will not scratch and you can put them any where as long as it is against metal inside the doors walls behind the lip of the door on the outside even. I was considering getting a piece of 1/4 inch plywood arrange the magnets behind use some liquid nails and stick it to the wall a few screws to hold it and have an invisible magnetic tool holder under the desk some of these can hold many pounds easily the tiny ones I have can hold 8 pounds no common mag loaded weights 8 pounds except drums and a few could hold that. just a thought.
Neodymium Magnets these things are a hoot but they can be dangerous actually their power always intrigued me and I decided to make use of some for a knife sheath in fact for the screwdriver handled Mora knife build I did a while back. My objective is to make a sheath that could hold the knife firmly in the sheath without a strap in one trial I used on one side that was ok but not as firm when I used them on both sides a 1/2 inch X 3 inch magnet on both sides of 1/4 inch leather folded together. I ordered some thin Kydex so I could trap the magnets against the leather I may go all kydex . I wanted it to hold against rigorous movement like horseback riding even running or jumping and so far it works fine there are some issues magnets do not agree with electronic equipment this is not a problem I only use a compass when out I can keep them apart easily a positive is if you need a compass you can use these to magnetize metal I have other knife sheaths and considered epoxy in one in the bottom so if for some reason the snap is not set the knife will not get lost tried it on my Swiss Army explorer plus and it works great on the opposite end of where the key ring is on. I will get out my buck knife and look at that as well, since stainless is magnetic it works well with stainless knifes as well. I tried these magnets against surgical instruments and it worked fine. My emergency medical kit is a MTM survivor dry box I am considering using a bar magnet to hold the instruments in place.
