Excellent for magnetising models.
on 5 September 2014
Bought 1 set of 50 for magnetising my 40k (Tau battlesuits and their weapons) and with a 2mm drill bit (10 pack very cheap here on amazon) I have quickly and cleanly magnetised a lot of stuff (4-5 magnets per xv8 and up to 3 per weapon for lots of choice), I used 30 magnets in about an hour, these magnets are very good, exactly the size stated, quite strong and despite being small not hard to fiddle around with. I recommend these to anyone doing a similar task as me.
I am back to order another 2 sets, 100 magnets should last me for quite while, I also have some 3x1mm (and 3mm drill bits) which I will use for vehicles and they are just as good but bigger and stronger of course.
I would say the only improvement I would like is to be stronger but that probably isn't possible due to the limit of a magnet this small.
The magnets allow rotation and it is quite loose so if you don't want the parts to rotate then just make sure the 2 parts are in contact so their friction stops any rotating.
