What are the best magnets for armour assembly and can someone post a link?

I need to know sizes and best shapes etc?

Thank you.

Hi Joe search eBay for rare earth magnets. You can get square round cylindrical or flat. They only need to be as big as your thumbnail.

10mm square would be big ebough - Pete was kind to let me have a few and they are all different sizes. If you just want them to hold plastic together for armour building they dont need to be too large.

I got the 1/2" x 1/2" x 1/8" think that works out at 12mm x 12mm x 3mm.
Yes, just had to get the gold plated ones. Smile not too bad at 37.5p each.
