Pen Blank Refrigerator Earth Magnet Set: with 1 in. x 8tpi Chuck
Everything you need to turn a rare earth refrigerator magnet out of your pen blank remnants. This is a great little project that salvages 1" pen blank remnants and makes a practical, unique and powerful refrigerator magnet. Give as a gift, or use around the house. It’s easy to make, just drill a 1/2" x 1/8" hole then drill and mount your scrap onto a bottle stopper chuck. After turning and finishing glue in a 1/2" dia, earth magnet and you're done.
This package includes everything you need to create this project:
- Large 1/2" Drill Bit
- Bottle Stopper Chuck* for 1" x 8tpi lathes
- Pack of 10 1/2" earth magnets
*Note: Using the chuck requires drilling the 23/64 hole then threading in the stud. Threading wood into a wood or acrylic hole is not an exact science; you may find the mandrel a bit too loose or too tight depending on many factors including; your drill press accuracy, type of material, moisture content etc. Although the bit works fine in most cases we cannot guarantee it works in all cases. For best and most consistent results, use Drill and Tap set #BSTAPSET. This set includes a 5/16in drill bit and 3/8in tap that will work perfectly every time regardless of materials.
