Adhesive magnets for chalk - 01-29-2018, 03:43 PM

Does anyone make adhesive magnets that can be applied to the bottom of any brand of chalk so that you can then attach the chalk to any of the popular pocket magnets?
I don't like using chalk that is housed in a plastic or leather shell. All the magnetic holders come with a square plastic holder for the chalk. The holders have either a magnet or metal base to attach to the pocket magnet. The problem with these holders is that once the chalk starts wearing down the holder gets in the way. Also, I'm just used to using a small cube of chalk and don't care for the larger diameter of a chalk holder.

I just superglue a metal washer to the bottom of the chalk.

Back to the drawing board. I guess my magnet was too strong. The washer stuck to the magnet while tearing the paper off the bottom of the chalk.

Mezz has their Smart Sticker product for attaching a metal plate to the bottom of chalk. I was going to try that before the super glue worked for me.

I have the Kamui magnetic chalk holder. The cube goes in a rubber holder. When the chalk gets lower, I fold a piece of paper and put it in the bottom between the magnet and the chalk so it sits where it would new. You can use a piece of chalk pretty far down.

You could buy a leather holder and cut it down to a 1cm height which is what I did.The advantage of soft leather holders is they can fit square, octagon and even Molinari round chalks which is what I use these days.

I made my own magnetic holder for a few bucks which has a pulling force of over 30N which means everything will get ripped off the base of the chalk if you attempt to superglue anything.

When I was adjusting the pulling strength, it was a trade off between using the leather holder and never having the chalk drop on me or having less pulling force and being able to stick a pretty circular silver magnet at the base of the chalk with 5N force. I decided to go with more pulling force as I have cracked too many expensive chalks after they rolled out of my pouch

Tape - 05-03-2018, 09:46 PM

I purchased some small neodymium disc magnets ( 20mm diameter x 2mm thickness ) but instead of supergluing them to the base of the chalk, I did the following

1. Used double sided 3M tape to stick the magnet to the base
2. Then used some pretty stationary masking tape to dress the magnet with the tape sticking up the sides of the chalk ensuring super strong and semi-permanent fixing. This also means you end up with a very good looking customised looking piece of chalk and once the chalk runs out, you can take it apart and do it again on your next piece.

The reason I did the above is because I use round (molinari) and hex (predator ) chalk where chalk holders are impossible to get unless you pay extortionate prices for a bit of CNCed metal.
