  • I can't get them to stick...

    Not sure if this is where this goes...but any whooo...What glue to use for magnets? I can't seem to get them to stay put once I put them on a magnetic board for display...perhaps the rare earth magnets are too strong - lol! I initally tried super gel, then Titlebond...the magnets are glued to shallow holes drilled with a forstner bit on a painted surface...any suggestions!?!

    I appreciate the advise in advance!

    5 min epoxy or Perhaps weldbond.

      Use a two part epoxy. I use a 30 minute epoxy. Comes in two bottles. You mix equal amounts onto small piece of cardboard. Apply with a toothpick and let set for a couple of hours.

        Yep, its a +1 with the two part epoxy from me.

        5 or 30 min will be fine ( but if using the 5 min type, don't go for a coffee between mixing it and applying.. as sometimes 5 mins is a bit of an exaggeration)

        I prefer the syringe style of pack as it makes the 'equal parts' without having to worry.

          I recess the rare earth magnets into the back slightly with a Forstner bit and use 5 min epoxy. Like Dan, I use a toothpick and fill the cavity about 1/2 full .

            Did you paint the shallow hole before gluing the magnet in? If so, could it be the paint not holding rather than the glue.

            If this is the case, you would see the paint on the back of the magnet rather than the glue. Before taking the time and effort to get epoxy, try cleaning the paint out of the hole and see if it holds better.

              Rough up the magnets on sandpaper before the super glue, and as others have said make sure the other surface is clean....no paint, varnish etc.

                  Thanx everyone!!! I will give the epoxy a try...probably the 30 min, as 5 minutes get away from way too fast - lol!

                  Ya, I was painting the recess (as the recess was slightly larger than the magnet). For now on tho, I will not paint it and rough up the magnet too. However, it was just the glue and magnet coming off, not any paint or finish.

                  Once again, I appreciate all the input!

                    Rolf, smaller bowl-cutting angles, 30˚ or less, usually don't present a problem either with vibration or for cutting into the table. It's when you get into the 40˚ and 45˚ range that things get dicey for both. (The Seyco saw doesn't even cut bevels greater than 35˚ or so!) If you add even a slight...

                    I've done some bevel cutting on my EX-21 as well and also have not experienced any added vibration, nor have I cut into the table. Perhaps I haven't cut at a steep enough angle, but the existing blade hole has been sufficient. I do despise the useless vacuum holes, but I've learned to live with them...

                    Carole Your hole size was a concern when I purchased the Pegas Replacement Table for my EX21, because I had cut into the side of hole on the original table, The damage I did to the old table was due to the blade adjustments were not in the center of blade holders. So far that has not been an issue...

                    That is an interesting point Carole. I have done some bevel cutting on the EX and can't say that I have experienced an increase in vibration or any problems with following the lines. I know when I cut one of your bowl designs on my Hawk I really had to concentrate on not pushing down hill....

                    Just a word of caution about the size of the blade hole. When I used a DeWalt years ago in the infamous community woodshop, and also with my more recent experiences with the Jet, if you do much bevel cutting at a steep angle, you will cut into the table. That's why inserts have the slot that can be...
