I'm trying to track down some magnets to close some cabinet doors - I need an 8mm one for the carcass and a 4mm one for the door, in brass. I'm having zero luck googling but I bet someone on here knows where to source them?!

I'm doing the project in F&C173, p34 if it helps!

I've got this link bookmarked for magnets but I've not need to use it yet

I've also bought them from Ebay.
As for Brass, then I'd fit a brass disc after fitting the magnets or better might be to use a wooden plug.

DO experiment before fitting the magnets which faces attract, mark them with a felt pen so you know which way to bury them in the wood.
Nothing worse than a door that refuses to shut due to magnetic repulsion!!!
I could not possibly admit to doing such a thing - naturally!

Try some rare earth magnets & hide them in the door & rebate.
