Does anyone know any good magnets that i can get in Sweden without using eBay. I heard that the magnets over at Clas Ohlson weren't good enough!

I have no idea on where to get magnets strong enough outside E-bay unless you have 10 or so harddrives you can take apart.

A 40 mm PVC pipe shouldn't be too hard to find though, Clas Ohlson might have that.

Would the Small and stick magnet here do the job?

Yes, those are strong enough. At the bottom of the page you see the grades N42 and N45. Those indicate the strength. Higher is better.

After a quite long break I'm finally taking this up again and this time I'll finish it! I just glued my left shin, so thats done. I'm working on strapping the chest so that's soon done, I just have one question, would a hairdryer generate enough heat for my shoulderstraps to bend?, i can't seem to hold them down with just the white fabric.

Pictures are coming up this week!

Until next time,

Yes, that should be enough with a hairdryer. What's safer to do, and easier is to put them in boiling water for a while.

Do you boil the whole piece or do you bend it and dip the bent part into the water?
