« Part 5: Glue Up; That's the one I've been looking for. Part 6 of Weather Station: The Next Generation series no next part

The last step in the process is to install the magnets. If you’ve followed this blog you may recall how I messed this up in the first Weather Station. Here’s a link to that particular mistake and my solution. Of coarse the best solution is to get it right the first time. So here goes.

I started by glueing in two magnets using CA glue. This time around I splurged on a 10MM drill bit to match the 10mmx5mm magnets. It seems it is much easier to find metric magnets than imperial, but I digress. I then stuck a matching magnet on each of these and marked the outside with a red X.

I then glued those magnets into the bottom of the outer top with the red X down and whala. It works and this project is DONE! I hope you enjoyed this series. Thanks for looking. I’ll post final pictures on the projects page.
