Thanks, Runeweaver. I think I'll try this first, then do Pacarat's method if not. Yes, the nails are a good idea...but I think I'd clip nails off so I can drive them in with glue on 'em. Just surfact gluing might come off.

How I am going to do it:

take ferrous brad with flat head about 3/16" or so diameter
snip all but about 1/8" off shank
drill hole diameter of shank to depth of shank
drill a shallow 1/32" counter sink hole the diameter of nail head
glue in place so that head is just a wee bit recessed
use some flexible but permanent material to cover head (GS, white glue, putty, etc.)
score to reflect wood grain
let dry
paint

repeat above steps on opposite piece, only using just a magnet as an insert.

Obviously doing magnets on one type and nail heads on the other would be the fool/polarity proof method... :D
Pretty much what I had in mind, Pacarat, except that I didn't plan to cover the countersunk head. I plan on putting the mag/nail head in the part that's hidden anyway.

Small holes drilled and magnets inserted?

I would do a small flat head ferrous nail on one piece type, and magnets on the other. (then polarity is not an issue.)

I had some similar issues, but they were easily fixed by the technique that you described. Mine however were little twisted, especially the fancy balconies. It should work fine once you fix it as mentioned.

KS Tudor Balcony Insert - Problems?

Post by GODofwar » Fri May 13, 2016 12:57 am

Whenusing the balcony bases with Tudor inserts, I find the inserts don't stick well. The whole shebang tends to fall apart.

Anyone else seen this?

I'm thinking of hot-water treating the insert (the walls of the closed balconies) and bending the parts that insert into the house slightly outward, then cold-water dipping. Any thoughts?
