hi all, i have a suggestion

Postby badminton » Fri Jan 18, 2019 6:27 pm

Hi, I'm thinking of doing the project linked above, but I am wondering about the type of magnets it calls for: "5–10 permanent iron magnets of equal size and strength." I visited a hobby store today and asked about "permanent iron magnets," and the clerk wasn't sure what I was referring to. They carried ceramic magnets or very small rare earth magnets. Searching online, I can't find anything to purchase that is specifically called a "permanent iron magnet." My question is, would it be alright to use ceramic magnets for this experiment, or what would you recommend?

Thanks in advance for your help!
