5 Uses for Disc Magnets
Apex Magnets has over 100 options for disc magnets, and for good reason! These circular, flat magnets are the most commonly used magnet shape. Neodymium disc magnets have significant strength—pull forces range from 5 ounces to 1174.9 pounds per magnet, while diameters range from 2 millimeters to 6 inches—and come in a variety of sizes, thicknesses, materials, and coatings, making it easy to find the perfect product for your next project. Over the years, our team and customers have found many ways to put these versatile magnets to use. From classroom demonstrations to organizational tools, we’ve compiled a list of five uses for our disc magnets.
DIY Decor Magnets
When hearing the word “magnet,” most people immediately think of flimsy, decorative refrigerator magnets. While Apex Magnets doesn’t sell these kinds of magnets, our disc magnets can be used to create your own fun, personalized magnets to use on the fridge, whiteboards, filing cabinets, and any other magnetic surface!
You can make DIY magnets for yourself or as a gift for others, such as these Polaroid magnets to remember a trip or experience you shared with them. Want to bring a little healing into your life? Make these raw crystal magnets. If you have a stockpile of wine corks lying around, these wine cork succulent magnets are a cute and crafty addition to your kitchen.
Display Your Kitchen Knives
We know how precious counter space is in the kitchen, so ditch the bulky knife block and instead opt to hang your kitchen knives on the wall. Organizing your kitchen has never been easier with disc magnets.
Make Reading a Book Easier
One of our customers sent us an innovative solution that makes reading a physical book easier with, you guessed it, disc magnets. Two disc magnets can be used to pinch and hold pages together, preventing individual pages from sliding and falling open.
Repurpose an Old Filing Cabinet
Who said you can only use a piece of furniture for its initial intended purpose? We found a way to repurpose a filing cabinet for use in the kitchen. Yes, you read that correctly. Our blog walks you through how to transform a filing cabinet into a kitchen island with the help of disc magnets.
Demonstrate Magnetism in the Classroom
If you teach science, magnetism can be difficult to explain without having a useful visual to accompany your lecture or lesson plan. Apex magnets can help. Use a disc magnet, along with PVC tubing and a brass or aluminum tube, to demonstrate magnetic fields for your students.
