Instructables
This is my submission for the fridge magnet challenge. It is a thumbtack fridge magnet you use them to hang all sorts of things around the house why not make one to use on your fridge. This is good because if you do this you don't have to poke holes in your fridge to put tacks up.

Step 1: Tools

This is a every thing you will need to do this instructable you can use hand tools dremel tools,epoxy glue,glue guns, lighter pretty much whatever you have access too. i got these magnets out of some light up pins that broke and when choosing pins choose the cheapest ones you can find.

Step 4: Melting out pin

this way works very well if you have the right thumbtacks after doing this proceed to file the plastic a little because the are tiny chunks left of the plastic that will prevent the magnet from sticking flush.

awesome work buddy .........keep it up

I love it.
great now I need a new fridge, someone could have told i wasn't supposed to put holes in it (non tack related incident) this is one of those ideas that is really needless but lovable and if sold in shops it would catch on really well.
How did you put holes in your refrigerator?
errr drinking makes a good umbrella term...

Nice Idea. Where can I get those magnets? They are a step beyond where tech- nology was when I retired.

check out the super magnets! looks like they can implode a car or something
Hahaha, I bet a bunch of geeks hoping to be like Magneto buy those super magnets. :D But it would be fun to walk through a room with one and have little metals objects fly at you.
GREATEST IDEA EVER!! Situation: A crazy gunman barricaded himself in a small red neck house pointing guns out the windows and shooting at the cops surrounding it Solution: Throw a magnet in there! Bonus if it sticks to a heavy appliance like a stove or fridge. The bad guy goes to see what the noise was, and bam, the gun sticks to the magnet, swat team rush in!
By the way -- is this someone you know's work? I have a strange feeling...
ur right, high quality magnets of that size can exert forces of thousands of pounds and crush bone O.o
You can get about 35 or so smaller ones at thr $0.99 or $1 store buy the Mag Links in the toy section . Take plyers to the ends and the magnets come lose .Larger ones online but shipping can be a pain
Nice.
That's a really great idea, I like it. I'll definitly be making some of these.
And now I have..love em.

nice idea, this will get you some surprised views :-) Another way to remove the pin is: Heat the pin with a lighter and pull it out with a plier, so you don't have to file it down...
