    I've got a bunch of donut magnets I saved from microwave oven harvests, this is a good use for one of them, thanks.

    Noisey hard drives are a good source for strong magnets.

    No problem, let me know how it turns out, thanks.

    Probably the same, They're both ceramic magnets

    Thanks for this idea and magnet sources...i use magnets for pet collars ...for electric pet doors.It is most convenient, however, to have a hole in middle to fasten with a cable tie to collar.

    I found a $3 one but can't seem to find the free one.

    it's the same one, u just get it for free when u use the coupon from the mailer.

    Honestly, I got it by coupon.
    What you should do? When you came to this store sign up for mail from them, you will receive every month coupons from them. Also check the Sunday Records with coupons, I observed these coupons very often there.There also other good stuff see on pictures, I got already dozen flashlights, couple tarps, rope, half dozen of screwdrivers. AA batteries(24 in pack) it was free and so good for small presents to your friends and relatives.


    That link goes to a catalog of wrenches; could you please link to the exact link you got that? I am very interested...
