The interesting item was pulling on the manet sideways, instead of straight down.

Not the same results, and it was not a surprise. It did surprise me a little bit at the weight that it took to move it sideways.

It started to move at 15.54 lbs. It moved a little, then stopped, then moved again. Max pressure was a touch over 18 lbs.

So, mounting the magnet on a wall will not have the same holding power as mounting them on the bottom of the ceiling.


If you want to do something, you will find a way.
If you don't, you will find an excuse.

Then it's just a matter of patience and time while the glue dries.

Doesn't someone make a glue with a 5 minute set time, and 10 minutes to full cure, for those of us that are in a huge hurry? Lol.

Yea, I guess not.

By the way, after over 3 years, who said I was in a hurry?

How about that stuff they advertise on TV that you set with a UV light ? Shows them attaching bricks to a wall and then people walking on them like steps after a few seconds set time. Here's an example from Amazon.... UV Glue

You should buy a kit and do your analysis and report back to us as a public service to your faithful followers[emoticon]




I want to say thank you for your suggestion to have a look at this uv glue. So far, it has been holding up well with the plastic "ear" that I put back into place.

I have never had a lot of success trying to glue plastics, but this seems to be working well.

I may have to order a larger "refill" and play with this on some other things.

So - Thank You.


Glad it worked.... I'll have to get some. I've tried super glue,JB Weld,etc. This looks like a good option. Appreciate your experiment and teh good results.

Reviews of the product elsewhere on the web has not been good long term. YMMV!

Hopefully, that won't be the case. Time will tell.

With that in mind, I am reminded of the review on Amazon from someone who purchased a large stainless steel pot.

For the most part, the reviews were all very good, except for one. She gave it 1 star. The interesting thing was the reason for giving it such a low rating.

The pot had a sticker on the outside, and it was "very difficult" to remove, in her opinion, so it was given 1 star.

Really, I thought? I thought the reviews were supposed to be about the pot, not the sticker! Lol.

Go figure.

Since today, the 25th, is our wedding anniversary - I was informed, there would be no work today.

Just a day to relax, have a special meal, and visit our son and daughter in law.

So be it.

Thanks. This one was # 49. Married at 18, so I am still in my 60's.

Whispers from the crowd ..... (Well, that explains a lot - old fart alert)! Lol.

Finally about done with the major spring cleaning. I am setting up the table saw to be able to cut my pieces needed from 8' plywood. (Part of the spring cleaning needed).

Since I will need to cut a bunch of different stock throughout the rest of the build - I figured I need to be able to run 8' long stock through the saw, which I have been unable to do for a while due to constraints in the garage/shop area.

So, I think I should be able to get started cutting drawer parts tomorrow, (fingers crossed).

Finally able to cut full length pieces of plywood for a change. Been a long time since I could do that. Yay!

I told my wife today, "hey honey, I found some inexpensive, very lightweight drawers for the motor home". That will allow us to carry more weight.

Yea, she wasn't all that impressed either! Lol.

I started my calculations today for my drawer sizes. This is the measurement for the available space for drawers - height wise, that is.
