This video shows how I take microwave magnets out of a microwave.
I hang screwdrivers, pliers, saw blades, etc on them. I hold up maps, building plans, instructions, etc...with them. I pick up nails, screws etc... with them..... the list goes on.. AND here's another cool thing I do with them:

DISCLAIMER: It can be very dangerous to take microwaves apart. The capacitor can hold a charge even if the microwave has been unplugged for a while. YOU CAN GET SHOCKED! There are other risks such as the ceramic piece that holds a dangerous substance.... if this is broken and contents inhaled, there can be serious consequences to your health. Don't attempt this if you are not willing to accept the risk of shock, inhalation or other injury! In fact.... don't even do this unless you have researched ALL the threats.

You got a angle grinder but no torx bits?
Phil Crockett
Phil Crockett 5 часов назад
Never needed a torx driver in my life, until I came across this Torx head screw. I have since bought a whole set due to the increased popularity of them. I actually came across one while changing out brake pads. As far as the angle grinder..... I weld and do a lot of metal work. I have videos on that too. Check them out!

use very powerful neodymium magnet instead of ordinary magnet so we got more powerful microwave frequency from same electricity
Anil Kumar Sharma

+Phil Crockett are you able to do something about magnetrons frequency by electromagnets or neodymium magnet so we got more healthy cooking technique instead of toxicity of thorium or beryllium oxide from using piezoelectricity crystal for generator of electron means we use piezoelectricity crystal cavity instead of copper or thorium so we got cheap technology infrastructure which cooking goes prolonged heated but simple life

The magnets from a microwave are no stronger than speaker magnets. But the health hazards are much higher and speaker magnets aren't as dangerous...??? Why microwave???
Phil Crockett
Phil Crockett 13 дней назад
I appreciate your words, but like I said..... it would be best to read the comments. The hazards have been well defined, discussed, and exhausted. The truths and myths of beryllium in microwaves has been described. Also.... I have been challenging anyone to post a link of a case where humans have been harmed from (Be) toxicity from taking a microwave apart. Anyway.... hope this steers you in the right direction. Thanks again for the comment.
Newmath907
Newmath907 17 дней назад
+Phil Crockett I appreciate your reply. The hazards are in the coating around the magnets that must be broken apart that are highly carcinogenic. Also there needs to be a caveat regarding health and safety. Computers also hold some goodies inside but with ANY electronics you must consider there are materials that are highly heat resistant and with that it seems to be the standard you are looking at Asbestos, transformers contain pcbs, coatings and adhesives are candidates for exposing yourself to substances that quite possibly could cause you some health problems down the road. You may as well get a Mercury/Aluminum vaxx shot right in the veins if you are that complacent about the dangers and hazards of what is readily available in our environment...I'm just saying

Why microwaves?... I get this question a lot. It's because I have a bad / broken microwave, and I want to salvage the magnets out of it before trashing it. I think there are some folks out there thinking that I'm buying microwaves in order to take the magnets out. That's crazy! LOL! Not sure why folks are thinking this, but it's funny. I had a neighbor that was head of maintenance for over 500 apartments in my city. He would bring me a trashed microwave almost every day. I would take the magnets out and scrap the rest. I had blown speaker 2 weeks ago. I salvaged the magnets from them too. The answer is/........ because I like to salvage good stuff from junk. As far as "health hazards"..... well, it would be educational to read all the comments. there are some great links and truths to be educated on. There are a lot of fables out there too. Thanks for the fun question!

Did this about 20+ years ago when a neighbor threw out their microwave. The magnets are hanging onto the underside of my 1991 Silverado oil pan and tranny pan. Had been on my '85 C-10 before. They'll hold any ferrous metals in the motor oil or tranny fluid to the bottom of the inside of the pan. Never had one fall off no matter the size of the pothole. Matter of a fact, I ran up over a curb (median) avoiding an unlicensed driver last summer and expected that they felll off but they were still hanging on when I looked under the truck when I got home. Can be used inside of the oil pan if you ever pulled it off to do an oil pan seal or overhaul. Too thick for inside the tranny pan but I have used smaller button ceramic magnets inside tranny pans.

Some microwaves may contain high temp ceramic insulators made of Beryllium that can kill you.
Phil Crockett
Phil Crockett Месяц назад
Very good comment! Couldn't have said it better myself! However, the big 'bad rap' came from dust in the mining and factory environments. Thanks! Here's a great read: www.livescience.com/28641-beryllium.html
Walter Dove
Walter Dove Месяц назад
I think the issue he was attempting to raise is the beryllium oxide structure of the magnetron tube. Innocuous unless you manage to break it: BeO ceramics can shatter and release a bit of fine dust which is a respiratory hazard. Beryllium bronzes (used in non-sparking tools) got a bad rap as hazards because some people used abrasive means to shape -- again, resulting in finely divided airborne dust. Is it a bit of a hazard? You bet. Is it equivalent in immediate lethality or short term morbidity to carbon monoxide from a badly vented combustion heater or carbon dioxide in a brewing vat you're leaning into? Not really. Respirators with N95 or 98 particulate filters are a generally good idea, just like eye protection, hearing protection, and clean-up using water rather than common vacuum cleaners (including consumer ones that claim HEPA N99 exhaust filtration).
Phil Crockett
Phil Crockett Месяц назад
Beryllium is in a lot of products. Don't follow the drama and hype. I have a friend that has an old bicycle with beryllium handlebars. The only danger is if you ground it in to dust and snorted it..... the dust particles can be dangerous. Just like the over-hyped drama with asbestos and lead paint. do not snort or eat. Use common sense in everything. Plus...... most present day microwaves dont have beryllium in them....... just another fact. Thanks for commenting. I'm truly glad you care about others. I get this comment a lot..... you're not alone. THanks again, Fakenews!

Nicely done. Informative. But, way too long. Too many unnecessary pauses. Shorten this substantially and I'd give it A+. Seriously. This isn't rocket science. Some may need the minute details. Many, like myself, merely need a hint. Like, "magnets are in magnetron; go get 'em!" This is more for total rookies at disassembly. But, well, I guess, many are.

HA!!! I agree!! This is an OLD video that I made when I was starting this DIY channel. the software EATS, and the narration is awful. over the years, I've been able to buy better editing software and have learned how to narrate better. I've learned also, that, like yourself, people aren't satisfied any more with just education and information to get a job done. people now have to be entertained above learning. I've done my best to cater to the needs to your people. I'm super happy you like my video. Thanks for commenting. I have kids in high school...... I hear the same thing from their teachers. teaching isn't good unless it's entertaining. Keeping attention of folks is getting harder and harder. That's the reality of it. good or bad...... it is what it is. BTW......... I hope my channel caters to the rookies..... that's my goal! Thanks again for the tips.

I've taken many m/w's apart over the years. as long as you don't mess with the capacitor, you should be alright. The rest of it isn't as bad as people say. THere's a lot of bull being said about the risks. but....... buying them is always easy, and they are fairly cheap.

DON'T use screwdrivers to short a circuit. You might damage the tips. Use a six inch off-cut of heavy insulated cable.

If you got microwave that has the spinning tray that motor gives out AC power you can power household light bulbs. I haven't tried any thing other than that but it's something to tweek on when your tweeking. Most lol motor you get out of eletronics are DC so here is a change

I think these donut magnets are identical to the ones used on magnetic parts trays that you can buy from Harbor Freight for cheap or even get free with a coupon with other purchase.... I dismantled a microwave before, but cannot see difference. NOW, get a VERY OLD MICROWAVE AND i THIN THEY HAVE HUGE POWERFUL "U" shaped magnets in them. That would be worth taking apart to get.
Phil Crockett
Phil Crockett Месяц назад
Sounds good. It just sounded like you were saying that it wasn't worth the effort getting free magnets out of a junky microwave, but instead buy them. That's what it sounded like to me. the U shaped ones, I've never come across. I would salvage those equally. As far as "risk" goes..... there's more hype with it than real risk if you've done this a billion times and know what you're doing. I'm interested in knowing about the U shaped magnets. I've never seen those.
YouSurf

+Phil Crockett Your comment does not really line up with my post as it was just a comparison and contrast to older units. What you replied... now That was not my point... just that a lot of work and risk of cut or shock from capacitor for a simple magnet which you can get for free at Harbor Freight with a coupon. The highest and best use for a dead microwave is to save the glass rotation dish in it, if equipped.... Makes a VERY nice cake tray or serving tray for deli meat, etc. My brother's 20 yr old small microwave just croaked.. I told him it may have the larger "U" magnets in it so worth the bother... maybe. It is very heavy for its size. Now THOSE mags are worth retrieving... good for finding things lost in the grass, vs the donut type of newer ones.

YES! Until that project, I never had a reason to buy a torx wrench. I have since bought a set, but I rarely use them. still not as popular as a Phillips or standard slotted head. The cut off grinder, however, is used on many of my projects, especially my welding projects. So ...... once again...... I agree! The use of a torx wrench is super rare. in fact..... I feel like I wasted my money buying them due to the fact that I never use it.

I do not recommend shorting the capacitors out because of noise sparks and high discharge that may ruin it! Use 60 watt 220 v bulb that will discharge the capacitor slower and without sparks. This I bet you didn't knew about it!

It only takes 20 minutes or less to get them out. Or..... u can just throw them away along with the old microwave. I guess it’s an individual decision on whether it’s worth it or not. They are pretty strong for what I need them for. I guess everyone has their own definition of trouble. It’s super easy for me, and Worth the 20 minutes it takes to do it. I’d rather spent 20 minutes getting free magnets tearing the microwave apart than watching 30 minutes of TV.... but that’s just me.

Ripped the thing apart with a Philips screwdriver, snips and a flat headed screwy! Took me all of 10 minutes ! These kinda magnets aren't that easy to buy in a hardware store in the U.K. Maybe online but a what strength & prices!?!? What puts people off, especially if they're gonna be used to make money (hard to come by in this now shit world) & guess what they will be used for....? ! ? ! lol.Will try em out & tell the shop owner's how easy it was to remove their alarm tags. so they'll update their systems.

Yes caps. can store a lethal charge... even experienced folks have there life taken from them because they DID NOT respect the charge they can hold ... definitely discharge them in a safe manner and be respectful of them after they are discharged they can recharge on their own not as much but some anyways... the transformer is safe as well as any other part (provided it isn't plugged in) just watch out for those capacitors.... they can really bite HARD and potentially lethal ENJOY

Transformer is very easy to rewire to different use. You can easy get good amps for bigger battery charger or car subwoofer amplifier in home usage. I have build my own 400watts using car amplifier and I build in power supply using rewired microwave transformer which gave me over 30 amps. My car battery gave up after playing 30 minutes of havy techno.😃

This subject has been discussed in the comment section over the last serval years.... to the point of exhaustion. Your reference is a good one that I've seen different versions of over the years, but leaves out a lot of information. Here's the short version: Beryllium disease occurs from the inhalation of beryllium dust particles. This has happened in manufacturing and mining situations where the dust is part of the workers environment. IOW: This has never happen from taking magnets out of a microwave. You would have to find a very old microwave that has real beryllium parts, crush those up, and snort the dust. This is no different than the "popcorn lung" case out of Jasper, MO, and the on going hype about asbestos. These product have been given bad names from extreme situations to where people are now saying you can't even touch them. My point to this can be summed up in this similar statement: Don't eat microwave popcorn. The dust from the flavoring can give you bronchiolitis obliterates. www.webmd.com/lung/popcorn-lung#1 cheers! no hate'n here.... just thought I'd get a fair turn at responding. I'm glad to know you care about folks!

No the capacitor needs to be drained down to earth, shorting it out will not clear it of charge.
John Perkins

Earth is not relevant nor relative to the charge in the capacitor. The potential across the terminals doesn't know what earth is.
Robert Veach

wrong answer. Shorting it out will cause the electrons to dump through the low resistance of the short, and will drain the charge completely out and make it totally safe to handle.

A hacksaw will do, best when charged (evil grin). Really shorting them will discharge them fully. Earth has nothing to do with it. If earth plays a role in this, the only way is when you touch (when discharged!!) one of the pins and the other is grounded (by the casing or any means) the cap will charge a little bit from your body from statics. But other than that, Earth?..nope.

Jim. If you have no use for a magnet, then as you say, to you, this video is nothing more than of interest. Some people have other uses for them, their 'worth' is irrelevant as they don't want to sell them. I take different things apart all the time, to learn how they are made, so I can repair others later. I always keep bits that might useful for other projects. Their worth only becomes apparent when you find an alternative use for them. I don't always find a use for the items I retrive but the knowledge I gain is not a commodity and worth a lot more than money to me.

Best advice to any one, go buy a magnet, leave these alone, all it takes is one mistake and you could kill yourself. For anyone who does not know what a capacitors job is, it STORES electricity, and way more then the unit will use, but needs to start up. TV's have them also, as do many other electrical items.

yes... this has been an exhaustive on-going discussion over the years in the comment section. I've actually learned a lot about beryllium and how they once were used in microwaves. Also... the history of this element is interesting. It started out as a sweetener due to it's sweet flavor. It has only been considered dangerous in mining and manufacturing where the dust is airborne and people inhale over time. And it seems that only certain people are affected by this.... kind of like a severe allergy. But like anything, people take the facts and inflate them. You should research this topic and like I have....it's VERY interesting, and will likely uncover the truths about it. THanks for the comment. I'm sure we could all learn more about this. In short..... even though the modern microwaves don't have beryllium, I still wouldn't crush the insulator up and snort it! HA! Thanks again for watching and commenting.

he says at the beginning not to attempt this, electrical shock can be avoided by unplugging the microwave from the wall outlet. secondly when you have the cabinet off look for a silver can with electrical leads on the top side, just take a good metal screwdriver and touch both sets of leads two or three times on top of this silver can and that will short it out draining it of any residual charge it may have. from there you should be safe to handle anything in the microwave oven without getting bit by any electricity. I have a new microwave in the box set to replace the one that just died and I am gonna remove the magnet myself.

John Perkins

Whether you cut the wires or not, you can still get a fatal shock from a respectable charged capacitor, but you'd have to go out of your way. Touch it with one hand and you'll go, "Yowch!" One hand on each terminal and you may go clunk. It's very rare to to get killed by one, and improbably that there's much charge in one that's been unplugged for a week. You want a shock, get an old TV. There are no big capactitors in there, but the tube acts like one and can really give a kick.

Either discharge the caps to be sure or don't touch anything. Those are high voltage caps and can hold nasty shock. Be aware that some magnetrons have berylium on them which is HIGHLY toxic, you don't want to break it and inhale the substance.
Phil Crockett
Phil Crockett 4 месяца назад
I've never had any issues, shocks, or other problems by doing it like the video shows. There are plugs on the ends of the wires, but those things can be knuckle-busters when they finally come loose. I just bypass that misery, by cutting the wires. I get a lot of hate comments for how savage this method is, but it's not white-glove worthy and much more efficient. If you were to seek other items, you would probably use more finesse, but I'm just going for the magnets. Hope this helps.

+Phil Crockett If you disassemble one, you will find a Photo-Flash capacitor. They are pretty dangerous if you don't detatch it. The reason you don't want to detatch it is because it has a transformer in it. This amplifies the power sent to the capacitor and that's what gives such a gnarly shock. If you attach alligator clips to each of the prongs holding it together, put some graphite on the other ends (to act as an electrode since graphite is very conductive), hold down the charge button, then touch the graphite electrodes together, that's when you see the large sparks and loud POP come from it. That discharges it, which I'm sure you knew. You can make tasers out of those things, and I'll tell ya, they pack a punch!

If he wants the stuff that much, save yourself a lifetime of regrets and spend what it takes to buy the lad a box of rubber gloves 2 pair of leather palm gloves to wear over the rubber gloves, and some chimney lead. Its supplied as a rolled sheet of pure lead a foot wide around 1/8 inch think. The acid is available in many guises, but preparing it from the sulfate powder sold as "low and slow" pH reducer for swimming pools might be the most educational. The bad battery's plates have a lead sulfate crystal contaminated surface that will provoke the urge to melt the plates with a propane torch in order to to separate the lead. Some of the incidental heavy metal components of the battery's metallurgy (they increase its working life) would require really careful handling and lots of disposing of contaminated gloves and wipes and so on to avoid becoming contaminated with metals that have significant adverse health consequences and are very difficult to get out of someone once they're in. ...and drop the battery off for recycling, they make new batteries from them and put what's otherwise unwelcome contaminants to their proper use.

Karl, it is possible to bring a car battery back to life. Many companies make it easy for you to take it in and not recharge it yourself. 2 things to look for.. Is the battery sealed shut? if so you wont be able to replenish. If you have a mid range to low end batter recharger, there is a way to fool it so it will charge a truly "dead" battery. Otherwise, if you are not able to do this, you will need to take it to someone with a highend recharger.
