post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

This is the preliminar idea:

 

 

Curiosly there are some Rare Earths in Argenina and i can buy Neodymium magnets.

Prices in pesos argentinos (1 dolar = 12 pesos).

As always ideas welcome.

That looks awesome. I had a snow suit just like that, too. What kind of finish do you use to keep it from getting scratched?

I can't relay on bees wax-mineral oil paste. It may be polyurethane varnish or something like that. Like in the video, several aplications will probably do it.

I got a nice piece of cedar wood, about 6 X 6 X 80 cm.

Me too, Grande. Hope the magnets are strong enough for cleavers.

Thanks for posting that edg.
I'm looking to do something similar, if cruder, as the only tools I have are a hand held drill and a hand held sander.
I have the wood, just waiting for the magnets.

They bigger ones can cause serious  injuries.

 

Don't have them near your credit cards.

 

Great for erasing hard drives when you dispose hard drives.

 

 

When you throw out hard drives, open it up, there are two rare earth magnets to be savaged.

You're so right dcarch. Very strong. Also, I will have to respect the polarization:

 

 

I changed the design a little bit. Iman = Magnet. Measures in cms.

Received the cedar holder. This one came out pretty good. It's 70 cm. long.

Quick picks with the knives i have in the office. Reasonable capacity but it's never enough!

 

 

 

 

Now to tell my wife i will hang this in our kitchen. If i'm murdered tomorrow you know why.

If you take one cleaver out, you can space it out better and not risk banging the edges together.

Sure. I was just shooting a pick with the rack loaded randomly pour la galerie.

Of course, that begs the question on whether we find out if you're still around....:laser:

Looks like I ran out of storage space again...  Instead of paying $50+ I think I can build this for maybe $15 in parts and tools.  @ordo has inspired me

 

I bought some 10mm diameter N50 magnets to make one of these.  Mine is not going to be as pretty, I just hope it's functional haha.  It's hard to find a balance of magnets that are strong enough but not TOO STRONG so that I'll hit myself in the face pulling the knives off.  I think the ones I picked will be fine if they are behind about 1/2" of wood.  but I'll have to test it out :D.
