Magnets for woodworking mainly need strong magnetic force and have no special requirements for temperature. Therefore, NdFeB magnets used in a room temperature environment and cheap ferrite magnets are the two most common magnets used in woodworking projects.
Woodworking magnets are usually relatively simple in shape. The main shapes include disc, ring, square and countersunk shape. To enhance the magnetic force of small size magnets while protecting the magnets, pot magnets, a type of mounting magnet, are also commonly used. Many woodworking products can be installed quickly using high powered magnetic mounts to keep the them in place.
