Update #18

Lost your magnets & New Magnet Project

2 comments

Unfortunately, some of you may lose your magnets, especially the small levitating magnet. You can buy the large lifting magnet, and the small levitating magnet at K & J Magnetics. You can also find a number of sizes of small magnets you can buy if you want to play with it. (Disclosure: if you follow those links I get a small kickback. :)

I also wanted to let everyone know that I've launched a new project, the Magnetapult. This magnetic catapult launches a ping pong ball sized projectile at over 16g's, and since you all liked the Magnetic Levitation Sculpture enough to back it, I wanted you guys to get first shot at the special pricing in the Early Backer reward.

Thank you all again so much for backing my project!

      Alexander: Sorry, didn't notice this until today. Did you get this resolved? Bruce@promotex can sell you spare magnets for much cheaper shipping than that.

      I'm wondering if you can help me because I have lost the small magnet. I can certainly afford the 2$ to replace it however the shipping is:
      UPS Worldwide Expedited® $75.41
      UPS Worldwide Express® (1 day by 12:00 Noon) $84.82

      Which is you know- a bit out of hand. Help?
