The Neodymium or rare earth magnet is certainly the best when it comes to strength and performance. The rare earth magnet features pull-force of 10 times stronger than other types of magnets and approximately 20,000 times better than the magnetic field generated by our planet. Before you plan to buy custom neodymium magnets, you must know that these magnets are also brittle. However, it can withstand much greater stress than ferrite magnets.
Now you might be wondering what the uses of neodymium magnets are. Due to affordable cost and bulk availability, the neodymium magnets are used in a variety of projects. You can also use them for creating some DIY products, which would be the following.
You might have seen a variety of videos online in which the artists use custom made magnet is used to produce several different sculptures. You can also get creative and use custom magnet shapes to turn your fantasy structure a reality. You do not need to use all the magnets because you can use other metal objects to create an artistic sculpture. You just need to search for the DIY projects with custom neodymium and there will be plenty of things to do with this magnet.
Neodymium magnets can be available in several different shapes. You do not need to buy all of them because you just need ½” diameter cylindrical neodymium magnet. It is not about building a tool holder for your garage, but for carrying with you. Suppose you are a mechanic and want to carry some essential tools to the job site, you should keep a small but strong neodymium magnet in your pocket. It can easily hold ratchets, wrenches, and other tools when you are working on a project. You can also use a tiny neodymium to hold your keys safely in your pocket.
Produce a mini magnetic field:
Yes, it is possible to create mini magnetic field by using custom made magnets. You need a round neodymium magnet and a copper piping of the same diameter as the round shaped neodymium. Now you have to hold the copper tube vertically and drop the round neodymium magnet in that tube. You might think that it will drop down like a ball bearing but that is not going to happen. The magnet creates a mini magnetic field as it passes through copper and therefore it does not drop like a ball bearing. Try this experiment and then repeat it in front of your friends.
Floating paper clip:
It is a classic experiment often performed with the neodymium magnet. Get a small neodymium and stick above the floating paper clip stand. Now tie the paper click with a nylon thread and tie it just 2” below the magnet. The bottom of the stand will keep the nylon thread in its place and the paper clip will appear like floating in air. It can be a great decorative sculpture. You can use a large strong magnet and replace paper clip with any other metal object to make this experiment look more appealing.
There are many other DIY things you can try with custom magnets. The above explained experiments are simple and quite fascinating and therefore you must try them.
