    How dumb can one guy be?

    Just built some pen boxes. Have them all sanded up and ready to put the magnets in for catches. Drilled the holes out and jammed/hammered the magnets in one top one bottom. There all set right ???Wrong I never gave a thought to the polls on the magnets so I have a perfect self opening box.
    Now to figure out how to drive one of them back out and flip it over.
    It could be worse You could be on fire.

    A self opening box sounds pretty useful!

    Thank you Chuck.

    It's nice to know one is not alone.

    Im one up on ya chuck. for sure after drilling out the magnet Id put it back in the same way and realize I made the same mistake again.
    I like arrows on things, like AC filters, when they show you which side goes in toward machine. Or doors that say pull or push.
