How to use a countersunk pot magnet
Countersunk pot magnets can be attached to non-ferromagnetic materials with the help of a countersunk screw; for example, to hold heavy fridge doors open and closed.
To attach the countersunk pot magnet to a non-ferromagnetic material, you will need to do the following:
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. a piece of wood.
The forstner drill bit will produce a hole of a consistent depth with smooth sides, which is ideal to insert the countersunk pot magnet into.
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 - Insert countersunk magnet
Clear the hole of any wood chippings and insert the countersunk pot magnet with the countersunk hole facing upwards.
Step 3 - Fasten with screw
Fasten the countersunk magnet with the flat headed screws using a screwdriver. Continue doing this until the screw is flush (level) with the top of the countersunk pot magnet.
