Keyboard Refrigerator Magnets
Whenever I upgrade my computer equipment, I try to find a way to reuse the old parts. In the past I have made a Rapid Fire Mouse Button, Jewelry, a Bench Power Supply, and External Keyboard Buttons. This time I made a set of refrigerator magnets from the keys of my old keyboard.
First pry off the keys. Then use a pair of pliers to break off the mounting tabs on the back. Next, find some magnetic business cards or advertisements and cut them into sections that are just smaller than the keys. Lastly, attach the magnets to the back of the keys with hot glue.
