Introduction: MAGNETIC BRACELET WITH DUCT TAPE

MATERIALS and KNOW about MATERIALS

For this instructable we need:

- Neodymium magnets

- Some magnetic pieces like washers or a metal plate

- A string or a cable to measure the perimeter of the wrist

- And duct tape (logical)

And also these basic tools:

- A ruler

- A cutter

- Something to mark like a "Sharpie"

- A hot glue gun (and glue cylinders)

--------KNOW about MATERIALS--------

Why we use neodymium magnets and where I can get one.

- We use neodymium magnets because they are cheap, powerful and easy to work with. We can get one in lots of ways, for example we can dismantle a computer hard disc, a CD/DVD player or simply buy them (they are cheap) online.

Step 1: Start Using DUCT TAPE

First of all, we have to measure the perimeter of our wrist using the measuring string, write down the figure in cm. Then unroll a strip of the duct tape and I recommend to leave a couple of additional centimeters in both ends to the measured wrist perimeter and then double the total mark.

Step 2: Fix the MAGNETS

In this case I have used hard disc magnet pieces. To cut them, I recommend to hold the magnet with pliers and hit a vise, so it will break only where the pliers were gripping. Put a thin layer of hot glue and fix the magnets on the marks and same with the metal plates or washers.

Step 3: FLIP OVER the Duct Tape

We are almost done, but now comes the most complicated part, so after several try-outs, I had a good idea: fix a sewing thread perpendicularly with the duct tape on the last mark with a sticky big drop of hot glue, then flip over/fold and cut the string with a cutter and remove the sewing thread.

Step 4: LAST SETTINGS &CO.

The bracelet is almost done, but we can always improve it, so I cut the excess of duct tape and squeeze the excess to fit it perfectly, with hot glue.

Step 5: THAT'S ALL FOLKS

THIS STEP IS A LITTLE BIT USELESS BECAUSE IF YOU HAVE FOLLOWED ALL THE STEPS YOU HAVE SUCCEDED WITH A FANTASTIC AND SUPER EASY MAGNETIC BRACELET

THIS BRACELET IS A SUPER USEFUL COMPLEMENT TO YOUR DRILLING OR ANY OTHER DIY PROJECTS, IT IS SUPER EASY TO MAKE-IT!
