How to use a bi-pole pot magnet

Bi-pole pot magnets can be attached to non-ferromagnetic materials with the help of glue, to create a jig or fixture, for example. To attach the bi-pole pot magnet to a non-ferromagnetic material you will need to do the following:

Equipment required:

Equipment required: super glue,  cordless drill driver, forstner drill bit, and a bi-pole pot magnet
  • 22.23mm (0.88″) forstner drill bit
  • Cordless drill driver
  • Cyanoacrylate glue (also known as super glue)
  • 19.05mm (0.75″) Bi-pole pot magnet
Wonkee Donkee says "There are smaller or larger forstner drill bits and flat head screws available, depending on the size of your magnet"
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, (e.g. wood). The forstner drill bit will produce a hole of a consistent depth with smooth sides, which is ideal to insert the bi-pole pot magnet into.

Flat drill bit A flat drill bit may also be used for this task, however it will not leave as neat a hole as the forstner drill bit due to its sharp pointed end.

Step 2 – Apply glue

Apply glue to the bottom of the bi-pole magnet.

Step 3 – Insert magnet

Clear the hole of any wood chippings and insert the bi-pole pot magnet with the magnetic face pointing upwards. Hold the magnet in place for 2-3 minutes until a secure hold between the glue and the non-ferromagnetic material is achieved.
