    Make A Guitar Pickup

    Did you actually read the instructions?"After your pickup has totally cooled from the potting process, you can put the magnets on your pickup. The magnets you need are called neodymium magnets(they are also known as power magnets, or super strong magnets)."

  • Pulling apart a desktop hard drive to get rare earth magnets.

    "Developed in the 1970s and '80s, rare-earth magnets are the strongest type of permanent magnets made, producing significantly stronger magnetic fields than other types such as ferrite or alnico magnets."Even assuming you are 12 years old and that your father, grandfather, great-grandfather and great-great grandfather had their children at 12 (not impossible, just unlikely) and that your great-great grandfather was still suckling at age 5 (again not unheard of), 1. It would be 1952 (52 years before you were born) and 2. It would be about 20-30 years before rare-earth magnets were produced that you claim you were harvesting them.Are you related to Donald Trump, by any chance?
