I totally just did that yesterday! Great minds. I drilled a hole and embedded a pair of small rare earth magnets, then covered the hole with very thin styrene. I'll use epoxy later to secure them. Now the really big magnets in the cobra head have something substantial to grab on to. So far it seems to bear up under weight.Moongrim wrote:One aspect I've tried- was just epoxy the magnet into a recessed hole I've drilled, and then had another similar shaped piece of metal epoxied into a similar spot above/below the magnet. You can paint a magnet or the steel plate.
I should start a build thread in the 1/1400 forum maybe.
