I have an N40 magnet that has like 100lbs of force on it. It is only two inchs across and 1/4" think though. The one above looks positively dangerous.


Incredibly fun toy, and a good stud finder.

i held a large magnet up to my roomate's TV last year hoping to **** it up. no luck, just temporary rainbows. i should've bought one of those monster magnets. TV probably would've exploded.

Hard drive magnets aren't really all that strong. They're decent, but hardly "super magnets".

The ones inside microwaves are much more fun.

Actually Hard drive magnets are Neodymium magnets also , they are just small for the most part. so for a Permenent Magnet they are very strong .

the ones inside a micro wave are electro-mags, and well when you start playing with electo-mags it just gets fun!!!

when I worked at MIT whe had some electoto mags that ran on 440V 100 amp 3 phase - Hu yay!!! CRT's 100 yards away Flincehd when we fired that baby up!!!

Why would you want a super strong magnet? The only possible use I could think of is to put one on your old fella and then go look for a chick with braces.;)

I occasionally work with permanent magnet linear motors where the magnets have a perpendicular attraction force on the stator around 10,000lbs with a .3 mm gap. The stators have to be lowered into place with small jack screws, doing it by hand would destroy things and lowering with a crane usually ends up lifting the machine, the stators weigh in less than 100lbs. Cool stuff.

But as you overtake him you'll be sucked back towards him, and you'll both collapse in a homo-erotic looking heap. It could be quite embarrasing.

ahh but if he has them set up so the like poles are facing one another , ( since the Like will repulse ) all he has to do is get in front of him and then the person in the back would be pushing you ahead.

no fun.
but the first corner will make up for that.
