Thanks for sharing that .It is a unique joinery system I think I saw Tommy on this old house use this on a hand rail a couple years ago but I have not seen it since. I think back then he said each unit was around $25.

Looks like about $6.75 per connector after you buy the kit, though I haven’t found a U.S. distributor. And I don’t have any projects that need to get knocked down to flat pack (rather than just doing these sorts of connections as glued floating tenons).

But super cool idea!

Imagine you have a moving company and have to move furniture built with that system without knowing how to knock it down.

Or, having once assembled it, trying to figure out where the bolts are to disassemble it again…

As a connection joint I don’t care for it and would never use it, as a technology I find it fantastic!

How they make it tight enough with magnets is beyond me.
