Drilling into a kitchen cupboard Countersunk magnetic discs can be attached to non-ferromagnetic materials with the help of a countersunk screw, for example to hold a cupboard door closed. To attach the countersunk magnetic disc to a non-ferromagnetic material you will need to do the following:
Things need to attach a countersunk magnetic disc: forstner drill bit, countersunk magnetic disc, cordless drill driver and a countersunk screw Equipment needed:

  • 22.23mm (0.88″) forstner drill bit
  • Cordless drill driver
  • 12.7mm (0.5)” countersunk screw, such as a wood screw.
  • 19.05mm (0.75″) countersunk magnetic disc
Wonkee Donkee says "The size of the forstner drill bit, flat head screws, and the magnetic discs can all be increased/decreased in size to suit your needs"
Forstner drill bit drilling a hole into a piece of wood for the magnet

Step 1 – Drill hole

Use the cordless drill driver with the forstner drill bit attached to drill a flat-bottomed hole into a piece of non-ferromagnetic material, for example a piece of wood. The forstner drill bit will produce a hole of a consistent depth with smooth sides, which is ideal to insert the countersunk magnetic disc into.

Wonkee Donkee says "A flat drill bit may also be used for this task, however it will not leave as neat of a hole as the forstner drill bit due to it's sharp pointed end"

Clear out the hole of any wood chippings from the drilled hole and insert the countersunk magnetic disc with the countersunk hole facing upwards.
