Since this has to do with building my own props, then I guess this would be the place to ask this question.



What I’m looking for is PK magnets or Earth Magnets, I haven’t had any luck finding any, except for this afternoon but they wanted way too much for them. If anyone has any ideas where I could find them. I’d really appreciate it.



Thanks a million. Smile

I would suggest you also try any science or school supply store, magnets are a common item they would carry. Smile

Thanks I also was just checking into a local school supply store in my area, when I got the post from Ray w/those addresses.

I appreciate it. Smile

MagicMan!

I realize this is way late, but Harbor Freight tools has a ton of magnets(different sizes!)



I'm hoping you have a store in your area!



Sincerely,

eBay Magic categories are about sataurated with some rare earth mega powerful magnets.



When it comes to magnet, I think the more power per cm of mass, the more design flexibility it gives you.

Radio shack also sells some very small yet powerful magnets. Or, go to the Auto section at WalMart and get one of those telescoping magnetic pick up tools. Strip the magnets out of that. I've made a penetrating pen and linking ropes from those magnets. Have fun!

Go to http://www.magnet4less.com
There is a $30 minimum order, but the prices are insanely low ($8 for M5 size).
That's where I get the magnets for my effects.
Hope it helps.
Think inside the box. . . it's less crowded.

Impressive scavenging skills. I once had a pair of headphones with Neodymium magnets in them. The Headphones broke and I tore them up to get the magnets. I have no idea what purpose they serve in the headphones (if you know please tell me), but they're part of my show now.

Seriously foks, you are gonna find your best deals on ebay. You might need to buy a larger amount of magnets than you require, but then you can sell the extras to your buddies!
