BDD 283 – Magnetic Basing

Magnetic Basing

I have Jon Kerr on the show for another hobby segment. This episode is Magnetic Basing.

Lots of methods, one particularly easy and very strong method using sarrisa bases and neodymium magnets.

Shopping list
4mm drill bit.
4mm*2mm neodymium magnets
Sarrisa bases and trays
Steel sheet ready cut from ebay
Plastic box from wilkos.

Mark up holes, drill, magnets fit perfectly.
If you mark up correctly (drawing crosses on bases) holes are all perfectly centred.
