Magnets—that’s a great idea. I guess it wouldn’t work for wooden planes, but still…

Sure you could the magnets are 3/8×1/8 discs just Imbed one in each plane and one in the opposing storage spot they come in all different sizes I saw some that we’re 1/8 cylinders that had 4/5lbs of pull.

Neat idea with the magnets. I would have never thought to embed a magnet into a wooden tool in order to mount it to a metal surface. I’m in the process of building storage for all my tools; I may have to steal this idea. :)

Scott: I’ve seen re magnets that would hold a wooden plane unless the blade itself is made from wood. But it wouldn’t be a good idea to get close to this area with a plain ferrous tool especially with your fingers between magnet and tool. I once brought two of these babies to a staff outing where one of my colleagues wanted to play with them. He held the first magnet with fingertips protruding beyond the edge. When he reached the edge of the table the second magnet simply jumped around to the underside squashing his fingertip. Bloody and painful? Yep!
