Hi
I need some small magnets that will fit into a standard sized hole for a wood plug, such as you would use when covering the head of a screw.

Does anyone know a supplier?

Thanks in advance
Aragorn

Thank you Chris - I didn't even think of looking there!
They'll do perfectly.

You can get them at art supply shops, the sort of place that sells painting brushes and paint etc. I got some 6mm diameter ones to close the door of a cabinet but they really weren't strong enough for the job in the end.

Hi Aragorn,

I've just bought the self same thing from off of E-Bay, quite a bit cheaper that Axminster, i bought some small round ones and a stack of 50mmx10mmx2mm ones aswell

this was the seller i got mine from, but naturally i can't vouch for his reliability, other than to say that in my case it was a trouble free transaction

Thanks for your help folks.
Ordered from Axminster last night.
They are to used as a hidden door catch for a kitchen I am making. Hopefully they'll work!
