I hope this isn't a duplicate thread, but it may be---Too many interruptions for my poor old worn out brain.
I have a 1/2 inch earth magnet in a cup screwed to a panel. The problem now is that I want it off.
Sticking a foot long piece of 3/8 inch cold roll to the magnet, hoping that it would stick to the rod. No Joy.
Sticking a 1/2 inch rare earth magnet to the magnet in the cup, again hoping that the magnet in the cup would stick to it.
Stick a one inch stack of 1/2 inch rare earth magnets to the magnet in the cup. Still no joy.
Stick a 1.25 inch stack of 1 inch rare earth magnets to it. Still no joy.
Using a pair of pliers I was able to rotate the magnet and the cup about 1/16th to 1/8th rotation counter-clockwise. Then the cup started turning without the screw turning. The cup is still tight enough to the panel that I cannot get anything to go between, not even a razor blade. I was hoping to put enough pressure on the back of the cup that the screw would rotate with the cup. Still no joy.
Unless I get a better idea, I will saw a hole in the panel and chomp the wood away from the screw out in the shop.
