Magnets

  • Refrigerator Magnets
    Refrigerator magnets are almost a necessity for moms, dads, uncles, aunts and cousins. For me, refrigerator magnets bring back memories of art class in first grade. I recall painting a very shoddy h....
  • Science Projects
    I don't know about you, but science projects always amused me. I hated writing the report that went along with them, but I enjoyed making my display. One of the hardest parts with a science project ....
  • Permanent Magnets
    Does anyone know the difference between permanent magnets and electromagnets? Well, let me tell you. An electromagnet is made by running a current through a wire. This creates a magnetic field. Yo....
  • Ring Magnets
    I love ring magnets for sculpting interesting magnetic designs. We're all so used to round magnets, or square magnets, that ring magnets are extra eye-catching. I like to feature their unusual shape....
  • Art Magnets
    The best art magnets are rare earth magnets, and the best rare earth magnets are NIB magnets. NIB stands for Neodymium Iron Boron, which are the metals which create the alloy in NIB magnets. The rea....
  • Super Magnets
    The term "super magnets" is a very general representation of several families of rare-earth magnets. Most regular magnets are made of some alloy, each of these alloys having different properties that....
  • NDFEB Magnets
    >NdFeB magnets are currently the strongest magnet configuration available today. If you are wondering what all the letters are for, they are the abbreviations for rare-earth elements on the periodic ....
  • Science Experiments
    Whether or not you have a science fair coming up, it's always fun to do science experiments right in your own home. I could be dating myself a bit here, but how many of you ever watched Mr. Wizard's ....
  • Spherical Magnets
    Spherical magnets are particularly beautiful, in my opinion. If you are just getting into sculpting NIB magnets for a hobby, I suggest starting out with at least a couple spherical magnets, along wit....
  • Magnet Balls
    Magnet balls are spherical magnets that can be used for magnet sculptures. The best magnet balls are rare earth magnets known as NIB magnets. NIB is short for Neodymium Iron Boron, which are the met....
