Rare Earth Magnets - 1/8" 50 count
TABLEWAR(TM) custom Rare Earth magenets
These magnets were custom designed to be the perfect height for attaching a magnet to the underside of your standard model bases. This smaller size works best with most bases supporting plastic miniatures. We also have a larger diameter magnet that works best with bases supporting metal miniatures.
These magnets are N40 strength/grade.
1/8 inch diameter by ~1/11th of an inch high (3.2mm diameter by 2.2mm high)
WARNING - Extreme danger if swallowed. Keep out of reach of Children and pets
Rare-earth magnets are strong permanent magnets made from alloys of rare earth elements. Developed in the 1970s and 80s, rare-earth magnets are the strongest type of permanent magnets made and have significant performance advantages over ferrite oralnico magnets. The magnetic field typically produced by rare-earth magnets can be in excess of 1.4 teslas, whereas ferrite or ceramic magnets typically exhibit fields of 0.5 to 1 tesla. There are two types: neodymium magnets and samarium-cobalt magnets. Rare earth magnets are extremely brittle and also vulnerable to corrosion, so they are usuallyplated or coated to protect them from breaking and chipping.
The term "rare earth" can be misleading as these metals are not particularly rare or precious;they are about as abundant as tin or lead.Interest in rare earth compounds as permanent magnets began in 1966, when K. J. Strnat and G. Hoffer of the US Air Force Materials Laboratory discovered that an alloy of yttrium and cobalt, YCo5, had by far the largest magnetic anisotropy constant of any material then known.

These are great magnets for use with GW bases. I've used 50 of them so far magnetizing my AoS army and they have worked great. Just the right amount of holding power to keep plastic infantry secured. For larger models I use 2 magnets.
Never Fails, Fits Perfectly

I fix these to the bottoms of all my 20,25 (old fantasy) 30 (privateer press and malifaux) and super dungeon explore bases. They slot in perfectly, and hold strong to the trays. It works SO much easier than foam and I wouldn't trust any other magnets to keep my minis safe.
Best size for 30&40mil Models

Its just the best magnet size for 30&40mil modles like for malifaux
Right tool for the job

The magnet size is perfect for infantry; makes transport and storage really easy!
Simple and Strong

The magnets fit perfectly under the bases and were strong enough hold the models in place. I can tilt my display board almost 90' and nothing budged
The perfect fit

These magnets are exactly the right size and strength for miniature war gaming models. Table War was very prompt in shipping and I would be glad to do business again with them!
Magnets perfect for WHFB

The magnets fit easily under the bases of my warhamer models and made basing up a movement tray a piece of cake when combined with shogun miniatures movement trays. Absolutely as advertised and a good value!
