Working on magnitizing my first model, and I'm not sure if I need to use a much stronger glue or if I just need to be more paitent. Just wondering what some of you all use. :)

well I always just super glue it, though to be sure you may want to add a little bit of greenstuff under and over it :P

then wait over knight to start using it (though do carefully test it so you make sure u got the poles right)

Hobby drill, super glue, Green stuff, dull hobby knife blades/sculpting tools, and patience. I always make sure to get everything fitting and lined up right when magnetizing.

Just be patient, be careful, and don't drop the magnets once you've got glue on them!

AWW, that is the worst. I get lazy and don't move the stack of magnets away from the work area and BAM the magnet with superglue jumps away and lands glue side to the stack. I found that quickly grabbing an exacto knife to seperate the magnets is the best way to avoid having to drill a hole big enough to fit two glued together magnets. It also might work better to put the glue on the model and not the magnet? :?

yeah, what I eventually starting doing is:

1) drill hole (first small pilot hole with smallest bit, then size I need)
2) stuff GS in there
3) poor a few drop of glue
4) add magnet (and push in so its flush)
