SHOP TIP: Magstrip Project (Home Made from recycled Parts)

Recommended Posts

well I am all about using old parts and such, I had a bunch of old computer hard drives and if you didn't know it they have incredible strong magnets. I tool them apart and used them to make a magnetic strip to hang odd shaped tools ect ect..

 

Hard Drives torn down......

I took some thin plastic channel i had laying around and with 2 sided tape I placed the magnets in place.....

I then mounted the strip and added some tools.......

There was something missing and it looked plain so I added a name......

overall this thing will hang most if not all tools.....especially odd shaped ones...

I thought for sure your pictures would end here with a caption at the bottom saying "Modern Art" lol.  Nice project.  I'm working on something similar for a Christmas gift.  I'll post when it's complete.
