Summary

This is a great little microcache container with a spot to mount 1/4" round neodymium magnets.

Log sheets can be found here. The 1 inch or half inch seem to work okay in this container.

Instructions

Print the lid and body at 100% infill for strength.
Use plyers to press fit 1/4" round magnet into the lid.

The container may be hard to open at first. Will require a few open and close cycles to free up.

Paint with your favorite spray paint to camouflage.

NOTE: Paint with lid ON so you don't affect the fit.

I printed this, and the two pieces slip off each other two easily. I'm thinking about redoing it with threads.

How have these held up to the environment? What about water intrusion? Are the log sheets turning to mush quickly? That's what I'd worry about. I see that the lid looks like it has a plug portion, I'd be interested to hear if it helps keep the water out.

I'm thinking about making something that I can put an o-ring in. But I'll probably make more containers that I can just put a bison tube inside.

I have had these deployed in Maryland since May 2013 and haven't had any issues. All reports are positive. Here are 2 locations that have this container.

The logs all say dry. :-)

Would love some feed back if you make these. I am trying to make a "small cache" next
