Product Review: Micro-Mark magnetic gluing jig

Posted on Jan 21, 2010 by in Product Review, Tools | 2 comments

Another tool that I recently acquired was the magnetic gluing jig from Micro-Mark.  This is a very simple tool in that it is just a metal plate with edges bent up at 90 degrees, and some magnets for holding pieces.  Using magnets this way allows infinite variation in how they are placed to hold pieces next to each other.

I used this jig in the construction of a recent plastic model.  Since I was using a solvent type glue, this jig allowed me to assemble the parts and hold them in place before applying the glue.

For helping in creating square corners this tool was excellent.

  1. I see that the date for this post was Jan and I was wondering how you are still liking this in April. Anyhoo .. I just looked it up on Micro-Mark .. looks like it might be very well worth the $29.95

  2. I was given mine, however I had planned upon purchasing one before then anyways. I found that this tool comes out at the start of most of my structure kits, mainly because it is so easy to use. It is one of those tools that is so simple that the only thing that comes to mind is “why didn’t I think of that”

    To answer your question; yes I still like this product, and if you do a lot of structure kits I think that it is a must-have.
