    Looking for parts

    Trying to find this kind of magnet, a flat square sandwiched between two steel plates. Need the poles on the thin sides, not the flats. Cannot find the proper name for it, in order to search.

    Name:  magnet.jpg

    Should be about 1cm/0.5in - 2.5cm/ 1.0in on a side.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    IIRC, I've seen that type of magnet used in magnetic cabinet latches. Try searching with that phrase.

    I have tried, and can't find an exact match. So far all I have found have two attachment "ears" on a rectangular housing. The one I am looking for is square (drilled in the center for attaching, although that is not a requirement for what I need).

    Your description encouraged me to search for "sandwich magnet" and "magnet sandwich" and some similar images came up. "Channel" and "assembly" are also appearing in the results.
