I saw an ad for an invisible knock-down fastening system in a
woodworking magazine 6 months or a year ago. The system has two
components that you would bury in the edge of two boards. It then had
a electrical (Magnetic, I think) device that looked something like an
iron. You would place the two boards together, hold this device on
top, pull a trigger,and the magnetic field it put out would activate a
screw (or some type of fastener) and join the two board together,
beneath the surface. It was pretty slick. No visible signs on the out
side, and you could take it apart and put it together as often as you
I know it worked with a mechanical fastener, once it was joined, not
magnetic force. The article quoted strenght numbers and they were
I don't think it was cheap ($5 or more per fastener maybe?) but price
doesn't matter for the application I have in mind. It is for a work
project, and if this works, that price would be cheap.
Anyway, I need to know what magazine this was in, or if anyone knows
of a website, that would be great.
Thanks for any help.
