Well I may know a lot about metal...I know nothing of magnets.
I need new magnets. I cant use what I have. Earth Magnets cannot be machined. If you aren't careful, they shatter easily in a vice. They lose the magnetic attraction if you grind them and they cannot be drilled except maybe with a carbide drill which I didn't try because we don't stock carbide drills below 1/8".
I could use the smaller earth magnets...but that would shorten the figure and change the look a bit. WTF... lets try it anyway.
So I need to find magnets more akin to the ones used for the fridge for the...um...we need a new identifier...
DOBERNAUTS. Sure...why not. Lets run with that. lol.
