    I am looking for a good place to look for magnets for holding my gauntlets together, my ear caps on over the range finder stalk and on the jetpack rocket tip for easy break down. I have seen threads on here with websites, but I cant find a magnet that seems flat, long, circular characteristics.

    these guys should do what you need; though it may be overkill i would suggest eight for each gauntlet, four on the top and bottom of each shell: cPath_1_5 | products_id_36 | Neodymium Magnets N45 Block 1 in x 1/2 in x 1/8 in - Applied Magnets & WindMax Wind Turbines

    and i've used guys like this to hold on the ear cap for jango: cPath_1_11 | products_id_638 | Neodymium Disc Magnets N52 3/16 in x 1/16 in - Applied Magnets & WindMax Wind Turbines i used 6 total.

    and never forget, when working with magnets, make sure you have the poles lined up correctly before gluing.
