They are called "speed squares." They're used in any & all construction. You can get them at any hardware store, Harbor Freight,etc. They can cost from a $1 each on up.

Interesting concept with the magnets clamping them down, Nobody uses T-pins anymore?
people are down right crafty

You could make dozens from a sheet of plywod if you had a couple key power tools,, and the skills
Here are a few I use in my woodworking shop,, simple and just about free as I make them from leftovers and scraps

If you ever build on a magnetic system you'll throw all your pins away. I built one about 7 years ago and have never looked back!!!!!

Roughly how much would it cost to set up a Magnetic building board system?  How much are the magnets etc?  If I get into this whole RC game, I might have to set one up!

Thank you for the replies -I thought they were RC specific!!

Life is strange - I had a huge garage in South Africa with every tool I could want (well nearly) and built ARF's and now I live in the UK with no garage and kit building is what I am drawn to!
Would like to build this Typhoon, saw it flying and the laser cut parts at Wings & Wheels at North Weald, UK this year.

One thing you learn really fast when building is to stay away from "RC specific" items when ever possible. A good example of this are the magnets I use. That company sells them for as high as .85 for one. Hobbieco sells a ten pack of the same magnets for $15! That's $1.50 each and you need 100's! I bought 500 at .46 each for $230 If I got them from Tower that would have cost me $750!

The Lind Magic Magnet system was great once I got rid of the hobby specfic suports that came with the kit and made my own out of hard wood.

Back to your original question, Harbor Freight sells them. I bought the aluminum ones, http://www.harborfreight.com/aluminu...uare-7718.html . I think I bought them on sale for less than a buck.
