    I am looking for Digital Photo Frames (5x7) that can be put on the
    refrigerator in the kitchen. The ony ones that I found were too small
    or integrated into the refrigerator.

    Could you please let me know if anyone is aware of this type of frames?

    Thank you in advance.

    Buy the frame you want, then go to Wal-Mart or any crafts store and buy a
    roll of adhesive backed magnetic tape. Apply the tape to the back of the
    frame, and put it on the fridge door.

    Checking first to see the your refrigerator is not made from aluminum or
    plastic....

    The 'This Old House Method'

    Drive a couple of drywall screws though the side of the frame into the
    fridge door,avoid the LCD panel. Adhesive tape will eventually become weak
    allowing your LCD display to come crashing down upon the floor shattering
    into a million tiny fragments of which some could be imbedded into the
    bottom of your bare foot resulting in possible gangrene and limb amputation.

    Didn't see that one coming did ya?

    What about the cord? My digital frame has a cord with a transformer,
    and it has to be plugged in. Gonna be ugly with a cord drooping down.

    Ok, take some lacquer thinner, wipe the adhesive off the magnetic
    tape, and epoxy it in place instead.

    I use commercial grade Velcro to hang pictures, up to 16x20 with small
    frame, on the walls of my motor home. Some have been there for 50,000 miles
    over all kinds of roads.

    I use the magnetic tape to attach carpet to the outside steps of the motor
    home. I do add hot glue to the tape, but I leave the carpets on the steps
    when driving. I've never lost one. They wear out in about 2 years, and I
    remove the magnetic tape and put them on the back of new carpet.

    Either would work, but the magnetic tape will be easy to take down and clean
    the fridge door, it the door is a metal that will hold the magnet. If you're
    worried about the adhesive giving way, just tack the magnet down with hot
    glue or a bit of gorilla glue.

    We have an employee with some of those fancy stainless steel
    appliances. She says magnets don't stick.

    So paint it white and use magnetic primer.

    Some grades of stainless steel aren't magnetic. Depends on how much
    nickel is in it, I gather.

    At one time, before alloys that were magnetic become commonplace, the
    standard test was to apply a magnet--if it didn't stick the part was
    steel (aluminum and magnesium you could tell by weight, and titanium,
    well, it didn't exist commercially).

    I've an old KitchenAid pot that's been knocked around and banged
    up for years. "Stainless Steel" is stamped on the bottom and
    there's no noticeable attraction by strong magnets. Did you just
    google "Stainless Steel" and discover the word "Austenitic"?

    http://www.physlink.com/Education/AskExperts/ae546.cfm


    If you have non-magnetic stainless steel and you "Slap it with a
    hammer", does that knock the nickel out of the steel, leaving a
    powdery residue? Is this the famous "plugged nickel" that is used
    to measure your theories' values? How hard does a pot have to be
    slapped to change the steel's structure and make it non-magnetic?
    Can it be done easily in a kitchen or is a machine shop's equipment
    sufficient? Reheating the pot to a very high temperature will
    return it to its non-magnetic state. Isn't the internet great? :)

    No, back atcha! Unlike humans, steel that's got the hots is
    non-magnetic. Nickel makes the non-magnetic state stable at low
    temperatures. This is shown in the quote below. If chromium also
    has this property, it's probably less effective than nickel. The
    same web page notes that to increase the corrosion resistance of
    steel, chromium is added.

    Gosh! With all this metallurgical discussion in a photography group

    This might be one of the areas where your wife could teach you a

    cookware, and many of them don't work on induction ranges.

    Tell Ron that he made the same mistake that you, Alan Browne, made
    earlier this A.M.! I wonder if he'll also then acknowledge his
    mistake in a followup reply while making a show of how much he
    *really* knows about the magnetic properties of stainless steel, as
    you did?

    I'd be surprised if anyone posting in this thread doesn't have in
    their house a magnet and both kinds of stainless steel. The standard
    of empirical enquiry in this newsgroup is very disappointing. And
    everyone posting here has trivially easy access to google. The
    standard of research is pretty disappointing too. No wonder so many
    are puzzled by their cameras :)

    You seem to have overlooked those of us who don't much care whether
    stainless is magnetizable or not......Though I am open to be persuaded
    why I should be. :)

    Imagine this scenario, John.

    Your family life revolves around the fridge - there are messages,
    calendars, sentimental trinkets, witty sayings, obscene little trolls
    (why did I think of that?), dreamcatchers, reminders, ads for essential
    services like Jeff's AirCon Regas, all safe and secure with their little
    magnetized backs....

    Then one fateful day, you decide to upgrade to the latest SS fridge, and
    then invite all of the family to an event where it gets installed and
    all of the above gets transferred. Imagine your embarrassment..


    ...no?

    Well, I tried.
