Woodworkers, rejoice! A new magnetic drill now makes it possible to have seamless joints with the holding power of screws. The Invis Mx2 attaches to any standard drill, making it possible to create aesthetically pleasing, stable furniture with ease.
Once the magnetic screwdriver works its magic, you can screw and unscrew connections easily, with minimal wear and tear. The innovative system cuts out the need for special clamps and the wait time for glue to dry. Invis is designed to work with wood and ceramics, with suggested uses for stairs, railings, and furniture.
So how does it work? The drill attachment is a mini magnetic field, that when passed over the wood or ceramic surface, turns the screw inside the joiner. To unfasten the connection, just change the direction of the actuator and pass over the same location, making it easy to assemble and disassemble pieces.
Designed by Swiss company Lamello, the Invis is available in North America via its website where a starter kit costs $495, or you can purchase just the actuator for $135. Check Lamello's website for availability in other countries.
