Another Refrigerator Magnet
by Mooselake, published
Stick artwork to the front of your refrigerator, or any other magnetic metal surface. These have tapered sides so you can easily angle and remove them.
Get some disk magnets, like the neodynium disks on the popular auction site. I've used magnets that were approximately 10mm x 2.5mm thick, and 6mm x 1.5mm thick. The smaller ones are handy for holding down bottom edges so paper won't flap in a breeze.
Measure your magnets, and set the parameters in customizer. The top diameter should be about the size of the bottom plus the thickness, or adjust the two to your desired angle.
Print one and test the pocket size. Adjust if necessary for your printer. It should be a tight fit, and has a slight chamfer to help get the magnet started.
Print more. Put a drop of cyanoacrylate glue in the pocket, then press in the magnet. I used a small arbor press and a washer to recess the magnet slightly, but it you adjust the pocket size you should be able to push them in by hand or with a pair of pliers.
Proudly display your children's (or your own) creations!
