Some good info

Here is a little piece of information about the magnets we use (in case you did not know): We use rare earth magnets (also called Neodymium magnets) which are very strong! The pull force of a small magnet is 2.4 lbs. This may or may not mean much to you. Let me put it this way: the magnet will hold up 8 sheets of letter-size paper on a magnetic surface. The pull force of a big magnet is 5.2 lbs. This magnet will hold up 18 sheets of letter-size paper (we did a test). These magnets hold things in place VERY well!
