I think that's what i used for the last batch. but - you'll might need to enlarge the holes a bit. It really depends on your laser cutter and the exact material you use.
Curious - From that site, you think the B224 and D23 magnets would work?

Sometimes you just have to work with what you got :) The plans I uploaded use the specific measures of the magnets I was able to get when I made the first batch of these pendants.
Very nice idea and execution!!! Just curious why your magnet definitions go from english to metric? Never heard of an inventor or craftsman switching within a project?

Someone here 3D printed one I think.. would be an easy alternative
Awesome! I thought about 3D printing them also but just love the burned wood part.
looks great! thanks for sharing
Here's a 3D printed version! There are 3 printed parts totaling 7.3 grams of material and 37 minutes of print time. The one pictures has two 3mm LEDs (red & yellow). Thanks for the inspiration!
Looks like it was in a pink state there.. its a color changing 3mm led.https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B01C19ENH8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
That looks great! are you using a pink LED there?A good place to get magnets from is http://www.kjmagnetics.com/ . I'm adding it to the instructions
First test run! This one is barely put together, just testing to see if the design worked. I couldnt find any of the size magnets you used to I found other ones. I am making some tweaks to the design then should be able to make some! I will post the BOM when its done :D
Thank you for your kind words :) sadly, I don't know an alternative to a laser cutter. There are services like Ponoko you can use, but I'm not sure about the cost.
I'll echo the previous comments--this is awesome and thank you for sharing the beautiful outcome of your hard work! I'm very interested in making a handful of these to share with friends--new and old--but I do not have access to a laser cutter. I'm curious if there might be an alternative way to get 'the man' design to turn out so well. Please let me know if you have any suggestions! Thank you again :)
Thank you - this is awesome! I'd very much like to make some similar pendants for the burn this year, but have a couple of design questions. First, those exact sizes of magnets seem to be difficult to find rated at N45+, though N42 is pretty common. If I need to substitute, is there a recommended amount of pull I should be aiming for?Also, in terms of simplifying assembly, - what if one was to change the acrylic battery holder to have just an open square large enough to fit the block magnet, glued all three magnets into the acrylic, and then did all of the LED-to-magnet attachments just on the one side of that piece? It seems like that would avoid the need to manage two different pieces as you thread the LED through the gap in the holder, but maybe there's another design consideration I'm missing?Also, I'm interested in trying out the two 3mm LED version. Did you do anything particularly different for those vs. the description here? I'm guessing facing the LEDs in opposite directions (i.e. skirts facing each other) would be the ideal?
