Loctite Super Glue:Hello,
What glue will work best with gluing the magnets to the pieces. Don't want to take the effort in magnetising for the magnets to fall out and rattle in the cube .
Loctite works very well. I used it to glue the magnets back to my clock
How big of a bottle is necessary for a single magnetisation - how much is used. I have seen some 7.5g bottles in the UK but don't know whether or not it will be enough compared to the 20g bottles found elsewhere.Loctite works very well. I used it to glue the magnets back to my clock
I have a 4g bottle and it hasn't run out but if you were planning on repairing more than one cube or so I think you should get a bigger size.How big of a bottle is necessary for a single magnetisation - how much is used.

I've come across bottles of Loctite 401 or 406, is there a difference. I have a Meilong 4x4 on the way and will definitely be magnetising it and sharing my results.
That’s lame. I’m trying to decide if I like my little magic I just magnetized better than my Dayan teng yun. It’s close. I just wish the teng yun didn’t have that soft buttery plastic. It’s silent turns freak me out lol.Yep, the same thing has happened to me a few times. I tend to just delete the moved / buried posts...
Back on topic, it does seem like the ED(M) is a good test bed for magnets. If only they made a stickerless one.
If you like quite puzzles, you would LOVE the tengyun! It has a very weak magnet strength, I think. But overall the tension was good out of the box. I just put some lunar and solar in it until I was happy.I've never considered the TengYun... I like quiet puzzles but I've heard that it needs work to be viable... Plus it's a little expensive for a cube I'm not sure about.
Thanks!N35 4x2 is good for both puzzles. Available from aliexpress for next to no money.
For the MF3RS2: Place edge piece magnets high up near edge so corner magnets will lie flat. | This cube is on the slower side and quite controllable, so this magnet works best despite having thick plastic.
The YLM's corner pieces are hard to take apart, but if you are careful it should be no problem.
As always when ordering magnets from China, be sure to measure the magnets with a caliper when they arrive to ensure they are the correct size. "4x2" is often 4x1.7 or 4x1.5 when ordered from China.I agree. Aliexpress is cheap, but you may have to wait longer for your magnets because they come from China.
Thanks for the advice. I was wondering if it was worth magnetising a budget 6x6 and how it would perform. I have Meilong 6x6 on the way from Britcubes and it will most definitely need magnets to be stable.As always when ordering magnets from China, be sure to measure the magnets with a caliper when they arrive to ensure they are the correct size.
