What Sorcery Is This?: Magnetic Drill Can Turn Screws Inside Pieces Of Wood To Create Invisible Joints

June 14, 2017

These are a couple video demonstrations (one very short, one much longer and way more in-depth) of the Lamello Invis MX magnetic drill ($565 on Amazon HERE). It uses magic to screw specially designed screws into specially designed bolts hidden inside two pieces of wood to create invisible joints. "I've got an invisible joint right here." Awesome, and I've got an invisible lighter, let's blaze it up and get expelled from invisible school.

Keep going for the videos.

Thanks to Thonger, who connects wood the really old fashioned way: planting two trees next to each other and waiting for them to grow together.

    Time to hook one up to a secret switch in my book shelf that releases a hinged doorway to my panic room.

    Fuckin' magnets; how do they work?

    Looks like a glued dowel with more steps and expense.

    That is pretty much what I was thinking.

    Ha, ha, ha! cookies on dowels...

  • Bling Nye

    I agree, except the product describes 60% greater clamping force, and more significantly, 'detachable in seconds'... if you ever need to disassemble for whatever reason.

    If you can find the right drill and everything hasn't pseudowelded in the mean time.

    The video is strangely unsettling.
