Can't beat a classic. These uncoated ceramic donut magnets have a 1-lb pull, which makes them dandy for classroom or refrigerator use. They measure 1-1/4" dia x 3/8" ID x 3/16" thick and are polarized on the faces. You get a wrapped roll of 29 donuts.
Pick up this 1-3/4" x 7/8" x 3/8" ceramic pick-up magnet while we still have it. It's in a heavy metal housing and has a stationary metal hoop, about 1/2" i.d., on top. The manufacturer tells us the magnet will grab up to 5 lbs of metal, however Pat and Magnet Testing Team #3 have repeatedly lifted 10+ lbs, so it's very strong. Especially if you're going to dangle it on the end of a cord to gather spilled nails or to fish your keys out of the lake/pond/sewer/drain!
Rare earth magnets are usually killers for their size, and these thick
nickel neodymium discs are no exception. The price, on the other hand,
for (3) 7/16" dia x 1/4" 5-lb lift or (2) 15/32” dia x 3/16” 8-lb lift
magnets each stored on a 2" dia steel disc, is a rare exception.
Make your own fridge magnets. Everybody's doing it. You get a brown vinyl sheet magnet that is self-adhesive on one side so you can stick pics, or whatever, to it. Or cut it into whichever shapes and sizes you like. No special scissors needed. Measures 12" x 10" x .019" thick.
Very nice little rare-earth magnet, 3/8" dia x 1/16" thick. Disk-shaped, plated, with good pull for its size. Perfect for a latch on a storage box or cabinet door when paired with a small steel screw or brad.
Voted most likely to attract by the judges, this magnet has the relative strength of 10 men. A shiny silver 1/2" cube of neodymium magnetism, it packs approx a 15-lb pull. If our boss Pat were that strong he could lift 2,160 lbs! Besides its superpower strength, this beautiful cube also would improve the looks of your fridge or bulletin board to no end.
Okay, it isn't the cheapest magnet in the warehouse - but we dragged John's 165 lb filing cabinet around the dock with this 4-7/8" x 1" x 3/4" ceramic magnet, we're rating it conservatively at 100 lbs of pull, and we think it's a bargain. It has a 6" bracket with mounting holes on 5-1/2" centers, plus a 1/2" ID eyehook bolted into the center of it. It's all set to troll the bottom of the lake next time your filing cabinet falls overboard.
Once upon a time, a copywriter put this little magnet next to his computer monitor and got really pretty, wavy, aurora-like effects. And then got a new monitor! Don't try this at home. Our shiny, silver-colored 1" x 1" x 1/2" neodymium magnet looks innocent, but is industrial strength, pulling something like 25 lbs with enough strength left over to erase all your credit cards. And wreak havoc with your monitor.
In this case it's cylindrical. These nice rare-earth plated cylinder magnets are a mere 6mm x 6mm (which is a mouse hair under 1/4") but have a comparatively gutsy 1lb pull. They're likely neodymium but we can't say for sure. What we can say for sure is...surplus! Made right here in the U.S. of A.
