Geocache Micro Container by 2n2r5 May 6, 2013

Description

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.

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

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.

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