I'm looking for a source for magnets of all kinds--bar magnets, neodymium, the kind that are discs with a hole in the center--and especially bar magnets, approximately 2" x 1" x 1/2"

Actually Ace Hardware has a selection of magnets. They have disk and bar magnets of different size and strength. It's nice because you can go look.

My twin brother has around 200 to 300 magnets. I will let him know about this.

Anatole,

I use K & J Magnetics for all my magnets.

I think this is what you'll for and they ship really fast.

If your looking for some really nasty magnets,

find a scrap dealer that has some old computer hard drives, the older the better.

I have a few that are so strong they are dangerous, I can not pull them off of the file cabinet they are on,
I can only slide them off of the side

I had forgotten about K & J Magnets! I used to buy from them also. I remember buying some type magnet from them when Forcefield didn't have the kind I needed. I ordered from them several times after that. As I said earlier, Forcefield Magnets is a good choice, but I'll add a recommendation for K & J Magnets too.

Depending on what you are using them for, consistency might be an issue. If that is the case, I would suggest buying your magnets from someone that has been around for a while, since there is perhaps a better chance of them being around longer than some of the newer ebay dealers.

I have tried several of the companies mentioned above, but by far my favorite is K & J Magnetics. They are consistent in their sizes, reliable in their service, and helpful with their customer service. And they price their product right. What more can you ask from a vendor?

The dealer I buy from on Ebay (emovendo) is hardly a noob. His numbers reflect a dedicated business practice, and I can personally vouch for his product, having used hundreds, if not thousands of magnets purchased from him.

Jo-Ann's Fabric and Crafts (a national chain) has two sizes that work well and very strong. You'll find all the packages stuck together in the craft section!!

Similarly, you can find them at Michael's and Wal Mart, but I think they only have the 1/2" x 1/8" buttons.

I just ordered several varieties from http://www.apexmagnets.com and they were terrific to work with both in reply to an email inquiry and later on the phone. The 3/8" x 1/16" discs are incredibly useful!
