Magnetic mount for 4-gang mains block

3D model description

My printer stands on a wheeled tool cabinet, which is steel. I was using sticky pads to fix things to the sides, but this wasn't very successful. So, I am creating magnetic mounts which will fix the cabling etc to the cabinet.

This is the first one, which will mount a UK mains block (perhaps others too) to the side. It has cutouts in the base to accommodate two 30x10x5 mm magnets and four strips of 20mm adhesive foam (to add friction to stop it slipping)

It then has two lugs on the front to locate into the keyhole slots on the mains block and a flat base on which the block can rest.

I am very much an enthusiastic amateur when it comes to designing. My designs tend to have two things in common

1) They serve a purpose. I like to design functional objects which have a real-world use. 3D printing for art is fine, but it's its real-world application which will take the technology forward
2) Wherever possible I design to be easy to print and try to eschew supports or complex printing; modifying the design where necessary and possible to achieve this.
