Magswitch On/Off Magnetic Latch
This Magswitch On/Off magnetic latch allows you to create a custom magnetic latch using a knob of your choice.
The thread is a metric M4 if you need to attach a handle.
The zinc-alloy body contains two 10mm rare earth magnets that align when the knob is in the “on” position, attracting the latch to a steel strike plate with 12 lb of force.
Any base that is made of cast iron is suitable for these magnetic latches. This includes table saws, bandsaws, jointers, thicknessers etc. An awesome example what you can do with these magnetic latches is this micro adjuster as seen on Matthias Wandel’s Youtube Channel:
