Someone at work is looking for some strong magnets for a personal project, not really sure what the project is but he is looking for some strong magnets that are circular and roughly 1" in diameter. Any idea if there is a local store that would sell something like this or is the only option to order it online?
I suggested hard drive magnets, but I am not sure if they exactly meet the requirement of “circular”.
Maybe Radio Shack, or you could even try the gift shop at the Museum Center. But that’s just a guess.
I bought some Magcraft magnets recently from http://www.fridgedoor.com/, but turns out their own distribution / sales is in Ohio and Fedex Ground only takes a day:
United Nuclear has 1" diameter powerful magnets.
Not a big fan of the guy who runs the place, but they have a lot of things that are harder to find.
I have rare-earth magnets that are exactly that size. I ordered them from magnet4less.com; they have a significant selection.
