Rare Earth Magnets

Postby -SgtPDP » Sun Aug 07, 2005 11:34 am

On the recommendation from Scooter, I decided to post the link to Amazing Magnets. They specialize in Rare Earth magnets which are the strongest magnets in the world. Prices are fair and I've almost completely converted all my Space wolves with them to enable changing out of weapons. Saves on Model costs and ensures that you're using the models you buy without having to buy 1 meltagun marine, 1 plasmagun marine, 1 flamer marine, etc...you get the point.

amazing magnets

Anyone else use them?

What sizes do you guys find most useful for troop models and things like Dreads, etc.?

0.125" Dia x 0.0625" Thick NdFeB Disc Magnet, Grade N40, Ni Plated with Matte finish, Axially Magnetized

The 1/8" ones are perfect for practically everything. They're in all my weapon swap arms (all my marines, Tyranid MC's, dreads, Wraithlord weapon mount, vehicle weapon mounts, etc.). The nickel plating stands up to abuse much better than the gold plating which will crack, chip, and peel off after a while. I use the 3/16" ones for heavier duty stuff like keeping the top on a dread.

0.125" Dia x 0.040"

I use these ones for my SM arms and the like. I actually put together a Defiler using nothing but these ones as well. It stands up but is kinda weak, I'd suggest using stronger magnets for any larger work. But they work perfect for putting arms, torsos, and smaller bitz.
