Uses for Speaker Magnets: Screwdriver Storage

Another common problem we all have these days is knowing what to do with all those blown woofers lying around the house. (The ones from the speaker cabinets we've used for cat castles.)

I haven't quite figured out what to do with the metal rings. But there are lots of fun things to do with the magnets after you pry them off.

For example, they make a convenient device for storing a screwdriver with multiple bits on your fridge.

Added bonus: Sculpt the bits into different shapes while you wait for your spaghetti water to boil.

Try using them for magnet therapy.
Researching for my site http://magnet-therapy-how-why.com
I came across an account of a lady that cured her frozen shoulder with a speaker magnet.
Looking for more experiences like that. Fill out the contact form

I wish I'd known about the frozen shoulder use a few years back when a good friend had an issue with it.

Of course, he might have been skeptical about the effectiveness of the therapy.

But you don't have to believe a placebo will do you good for it do you good. And a placebo doesn't have to cost a lot of money for it to work.

So if you're going to do magnet therapy, by all means, don't shell out for expensive magnets when you can get them free from old speakers.

Bah, that's spam. I get it all the time.

One of my old speakers died, so I made myself a fridge decoration. Thanks for the idea!

Real Grouchy, I'm delighted that you were able to use the idea.

Raino, will you be bringing your husband to the next bloggers breakfast?

Jobthingy, we all know what to get you for your birthday. But if that is a long way away, you can find old speakers on the curb almost every week on garbage night.
