Very good but I might add the 5 min. epoxy is not as strong as the extended dry. If you require a very strong bond, bypass the 5 min. and just use slow dry. I will have to try this one for myself. Looks fantastic.

Very well documented, especially warnings on the magnets density and proper arrangement of poles. I'd recommend for those who find brass prohibitive; blank linoleum, aluminum, or linen impregnated phenolics. Those work for magnetic transfer blocks as well, as separators for mild steel.
