Oh yeah ok, sorry I was asking because maybe someone knew, either by knowing someone working at the cubicle / scs, or by experimenting with magnets and finding that a certain neo rating was closest to what is used in the ValkI know there is I meant there is no way to Measure magnets in a cube installed by a factory
For future reference: you actually don't even need to glue them; just let the additional magnets sit on top of the ones you've already glued.So I did the only thing I could think of: gluing the 4x1.5 magnets on top of the 4x1 magnets.
Sometimes after much research and fretting just jumping in and winging is the way to go! I do that with cross sometimes, and when I first lubed my cubesUpdate: I wasn't sure whether I'd like having magnets in my cube so I bought the weakest ones (4x1 N35).
I glued them trying not to mess up polarity and I succeeded on all of them except one, but I managed to take it out and put it back correctly.
I did a few turns and it was immediate: do not buy 4x1 N35 magnets, they are way too weak it's like they're barely there.
I had to turn extremely slowly to feel them: my solves are usually around 3 TPS (mainly because of pauses but that's another story) so imagine what I mean by extremely slowly.
So I thought "well, I managed to take out a magnet when the glue had dried (the one with the wrong polarity), I can take them all out and put stronger magnets instead". So I bought 4x1.5 and 4x2 N35 magnets.
Boy was I wrong, I barely succeeded in taking 3 magnets out. I tried acetone, using a screwdriver, soaking the pieces in hot soapy water for a few hours, it did nothing.
So I did the only thing I could think of: gluing the 4x1.5 magnets on top of the 4x1 magnets.
It took a few hours but the strength is fine for me, I'm happy with the result and in the end it was a fun experience!
