At last, some spare time in which to catch up on some overdue blog posts about stuff I've built...
So a couple years back, David Scrimshaw shared an idea of his to use the large magnets from old speaker cabinets as fridge magnets for holding drill bits.
Not long after this, I used a similar principle to make a fridge decoration, only I used the sleeve from a discarded baby shirt and tied the ends to make it look a bit like a giant cloth peppermint wrapper. I failed to take a photo of this, and I must have given it away because I can no longer find it on my fridge.
But the curbside has since yielded more speakers, including a very large pair of cabinets earlier this year. I dismantled the cabinets and extracted just the speakers to bring them home (I also kept the screws that held them in, which were also of very good quality).
To power a big speaker, you need a big magnet. Here it is on my fridge, with a Kryptonite U-lock for scale:
It also holds tools, such as a hammer, chisel, wrench, screwdriver, and pliers:
I needed the U-lock back on my bike, but decorated it otherwise with tools and binder clips.
Tools, and a magnetic clip on the woodsaw which is holding a fortune cookie slip that reads, naturally, "others are drawn to your magnetic personality."
