    Magnet size for crisis suits

    I was wondering if anyone has found a good magnet size to fit in the tiny hole in the arms of the crisis arms. It can't be that big. I was hoping to find some that can fit in there with out any drilling.

    Probably a 3mm diameter x 1mm depth would be about right. PowerMagnetStore .com - Suppliers of NdFeB , Neodymium , Neo , NIB , rare earth magnets and magnetic accessories sells lots of different types and sizes. They're UK-based.

    Typing a search into Google for Neodymium rare earth magnets should get you several suppliers' addresses if you're not in the UK.

    The thing is, you don't magnetise the arms. You magnetise the weapons so that they can be swapped round. Unless of course you've something else in mind.

    If you're in the US, K&J Magnetics is where I buy them from.

    For crisis suits I use 1/8" dia. x 1/8" depth cylinders for the weapons, and 1/16" dia. x 1/8" depth cylinders for the accessories (multi-trackers, targeting array, etc.)

    I used 2mm x 1mm magnets for mine.

    The magnet is small enough to be mounted into the arm and shoulder slots with only minor drilling and small enough to mount into all weapons and wargear pieces tidily.

    For added smoothness, I then GS'd in the remainder of the slot holes to give a clean finish.
