This is my instructable on how to make a eclipse mint cache container...

Step 1: What you will need..

Ok this is what you will need:

A smail pen you have made.eg. my geo-pen

A container metel is required.. I am using a eclips mint box...

A printed log with 132 spots for people to sign.

2 smail magnets... the stronger the better i am using magnets that are not rely strong but they still hold enough. if you use the metal coated magnets u have a better magnet.

A metal location for your cache to live at...
<p>Been there, done that. Have had one of these made for a long time now, just recently finally got it hidden and published on Geocaching.com. Was going to make instructions myself but hadn't had time. Good pics</p>
My partner uses the magnets that you can find in an old/broken computer hard drive. They work brilliantly. Hope this helps :o)
Where would you buy stronger magnets at? (I got some from home depot but would rather have better ones)
they have some little super magnets at walmart in the crafts section i have used them for a variety of projects and they work realy well
up date the magnet has been replaced so that now i have a much stronger hold this is not an evil cache so that the finder will find it harder to get it to get the log out to sign... evil, hehe, good luck for them...
How do you use the magnets? L
the magnets are on the side of the tin and this cache can now be plased any spot that a key cache could be plased. the magnets should be betta than what i used but they are good enough... the magnet force goes throught the tin and holds on teh metal object.. the magnet also holds the lid in plase when open... the magnet also holds the pen and log in place... the log has a bread tie that is help by the magnet... is tht what you were asking i just diddnt understand what u were asking i just cant c what the question is this is just a guess for my answers for what you are asking me.. chears
I meant what sort of places would stick this (no, not a great question sorry) - I was thinking about trees and stuff at the time, rather than mailboxes & lamp posts etc. Thanks for the details L
Actually, if you use a <em>plastic</em> container, the magnets will hold it to a magnetic surface much more strongly than you experience here.<br/>
