A disc mount is a small, magnetic holder for a CD to solve an access, storage, destruction problem we ran into time and again in our gaming area. Now we can store our discs on nearly any metal surface and rearrange as needed. The convenience and flexibility has resolved the problem. Learn more on our Disc Mount Project Page. In our case, we modified the back of a poster with tin to give us a fun display to store our discs. I show you how to do this poster frame mod in the instructable, Poster Magnet Board.
This instructable shows you how to create a disc mount in less than 10 seconds and how to use it.
