Magnetic sheeting

Also where would be a place to order magnet sheeting? To be used on movement tray with models with magnetic bases.

If you've magnetized your bases then you just need sheet metal - any hardware store will sell it.

Get thin thin thin sheet metal, so you can eaily cut it with tin snips. And bring a magnetized mini to the hardware store to make sure the sheet you pick sticks well.

Alternately, if you can get your hands on cookie tins, they work GREAT!

Also as a note-
you are better off using metal sheeting to stick magnets to than magnetic sheeting

magnetic sheeting has basicly ground magnet in it so that each side has both polarities, thus regular magnets don't stick to it well.
