Bill - Next time you're around Milwaukee and N. Central in Chicago, stop in American Science and Surplus - prepare to spend a lot of time and at least some money if you have even a spark of "boy" left in you <grin>. URL for them is here.<br><br>Regards,<br><br>Tom

Been there, done that! It's an amazing place. Although it's hit-or-miss to find a specific item since it is surplus. Plus you're more likely to find an industrial electro-magnet from a russian submarine before you'd find a small magnet to fit in a Wave.

It just dawned on me. That must be some rather low quality stainless steel if a magnet sticks to it.

Re magnets, modern neodymium iron boron magnets , are incredible strong as compared to older aluminum nickel cobalt (alnico) magnets. A small 5 mm diamter bead will do wonders.
