inexpensive metal tray for a magnetic jig

Recommended Posts

Many of you know that there is a magnetic building jig with magnets and a small flat steel tray to hold the magnets you can purchase for about $30.00...  If you want inexpensive or larger consider an older discarded PC. Many have a flat steel removable side access panels that would be about 14" X 14" +/- and a lot less expensive than you can buy online. You can pick up magnets for about $11


If you haven't used magnets to hold things in place they are very handy and well worth the money.

I use magnets taken from old HardDisk drives. They are very very strong, and usually free.


For the metal tray, I use those metallic cookie boxes... Double pleasure.  ;)
