    DIY Wurkin Stiffs



    Any thoughts?


    #2


    I dunno how DIY this is, but I bought assorted size metal collar stays and some small magnets off amazon, and they work like a charm, and way cheaper than wurkin stiffs. Using them right now, as a matter of fact!

    Also, those magnets might even be a little overkill. They hold on like crazy. You probably could get away with using smaller magnets. Lots of different sizes available from that company.

      Search eBay for neodymium magnets for possibly cheaper alternatives.


      Thanks for the link to the metal stays. I couldn't get myself to pay for those Wurkins.

        I like that idea. They have a 1/4" version of the magnets that may work better if the 3/8" are overkill.

          Just remember, not all metal stays will be magnetic. DIY won't work with brass stays, for example.

                Thanks, I just ordered a set. The 1/4" magnets are backordered for 3-4 weeks so I just went with the 3/8" ones, same as you. Hopefully they're not too much!

                  You guys ought to be able to find magnets like those in your local hardware store. Just sayin'.


                  (And yes... they are very powerful. My dad and I used a pair of them, plus a pair of screws, as the closure system in the watch box we built over Christmas break.)

                    @BenR - Good point, but I figure for $11 it's worth it to not drive over to the hardware store and I'll have a bunch of extra magnets to play with afterward. Even if they're too strong, I'm sure I can find a use for them at home/work and I'll find some smaller ones.

                      I always feel compelled to say this - keep magnets away from kids. My co-worker's daughter swallowed 2 magnets over the course of a day this winter and had a series of abdominal surgeries because they were attracted to each other across the intestinal wall and burned holes through her intestines. Not good.


                      I got a pack of Wurkin Stiffs as a gift and love them. Wearing them today. You have to be careful to not let the magnets smack into each other because they will chip easily.

                        Good warning. Small coin cell batteries too.

                          Be careful with the extra powerful magnets around automatic watches, too. A mechanical watch movement that is magnetized will not run accurately until it is demagnetized by a watch repair professional.

                            Maybe I'm just lucky, but do all of you really have problems with your collars not staying down without magnets?

                              It's not that the collars don't stay down. It's just that they spread and flatten out. They don't "stand at attention". This solution keeps the collar perky.
