    Specific question with magnets

    I'm starting my first magnet conversions, and would like to know how you get the magnets to line up?

    What I mean is... if the area the magnet is going into is bigger then the magnet itself, how do you make sure you are drilling in the exact center? drill a pilot hole? I would like the two pieces to line up well after I'm done.

    Also, what are you using for a drill? I'm using a big hand drill which is not the best for detail work. Also, what type of bit should I be using? I'm just using a regular bit now, but was wondering if a wood hole-boring bit might be better.

    I use a slow speed mini drill for small projects, or sometimes I just use my hands(especially on things like bolter barrels).

    As for positioning, assuming were talking about figures and not vehicles, it's easier on marine models as the shoulder pad can be applied later to cover pilot holes. But on models like imperial gaurd, the best method I've seen is to drill the body first then I make a fill peg that has a needle sticking out, just a bit, which I then use to kind of score the position on the arm.

    I'm still rather new to it though so someone might have some better ideas still.
