    Jan 16, 2009, 4:12 PM - Earth magnet fitting? #1

    Hi guys.

    I am after your advice on the best way to fit earth magnets. I am thinking epoxy glue?

    I am wanting to mount them in the hatch on the back of my pack - also may be good to use or closures on gauntlets?

    Cheers Bobby.

    E6000. You used it before Nate?

    Gives a stronger bond than the magnets then?

    oh yes - I meant for attaching the magnet onto plastic or FG

    I use E6000 for my TK builds; but been wondering abt how to attach magnets for my clone lids. I'll go ask around CE; I'm sure someones done it already to good effect in there

    I don't think magnets would work very well with the gauntlets. They would shear away too easily.
