Hello everyone, today I’ll share with you some DIY tricks and hacks using neodymium magnets. The related videos have been posted on our official YouTube account Stanford Magnets Official, and you can subscribe to us to watch more videos in the future. I will also insert these videos into the article for your convenience. Let’s get started now!
Neodymium block magnets have regular shapes. Different numbers of neodymium block magnets can be spliced into various shapes. At the same time, the magnetism will increase as the number of magnets increases.
1） Use about two small neodymium block magnets and attach them to the shank of the screwdriver. The attractive force of the magnet makes the nut and tip to be combined without falling.
2） As we said before, the magnetism will increase as the number of magnets increases. Therefore, we can also use more, such as four small neodymium block magnets shown in the video, and attach them to the hammer. Then attach the nails we need to the magnet. This saves us the time of repeatedly taking out the nails from the drawer or the box.
3） Is the scattered nails one of your troubles? Because the nails are sharp at one end, you have to pick them one by one to collect them, which is time-consuming work. With the help of magnetic force, the scattered nails can be collected at one time. So convenient, right? You can give it a try!
4） In addition to neodymium block magnets, neodymium ring magnets can also be well used in daily life. Same as block magnets, ring magnets can also be stacked into various shapes for your applications. It is easy to think of using magnets to “bind” some papers and documents. Compared with the binding machine, it has many advantages. Firstly, it will not cause damage to the paper, and secondly, attaching and detaching are very convenient.
5） Because of their magnetism, magnets can attract ferromagnetic materials, such as iron, steel, nickel, and cobalt. Therefore, the clever use of magnets in life can store many items, such as keys.
6） For non-ferromagnetic items, such as rags, and towels, clever use of multiple magnets can still store these items well.
7) At the same time, neodymium magnets are also a good choice to help preserve unsealed food.
Let’s take a look at the second video. The neodymium cylinder magnets are used in it.
1） Use the needle to rub the magnet to obtain magnetism, so that the needle acts as a simple compass to indicate the direction. The principle of this phenomenon is that the earth is a huge magnetic field.
2） Similar to the aforementioned. We can use two sets of neodymium cylinder magnets to fix the curtain.
3） Put a small neodymium cylinder magnet on both ends of the battery, put a layer of aluminum foil on the table, and then put the battery down. What happened is that the battery moved back. Unbelievable? You can give it a try.
4） This is similar to the use of magnets to attract ferromagnetic items mentioned earlier.
5） Same as above.
Soon came the third video. Several new magnets are used in this video.
1） This is similar to fixing a nail on a hammer, and it can also be used to attract a drill bit.
2） The neodymium triangle magnet shown in the video is very thin and very suitable for acting as a refrigerator magnet.
3） When nailing a nail, the nail is unstable and easy to crook. Using a pen and a magnet can effectively solve this problem. The nail can remain stable and it can avoid direct contact with your fingers.
4） The larger neodymium ring magnet can be used as a compass. By using ring magnets of different radii or different numbers of magnets, the size of the circle drawn can be changed.
5） Some small objects (such as keys) are easy to fall into the gap. If you have a ring magnet on hand, you can tie the magnet with a thread, put it in the gap, and retrieve the missing object.
