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 :).

I’m about to magnetize a little magic. Looking for suggestions and/or tips on what will be good.

Currently have some 4x2 n35 magnets.

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.

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.

Thanks

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.

Plus, I put 4x1 n48 magnets in the edges of my Yuexiao e! They fit perfect. Then did the edges with 4x2 n35 in corners. That’s why I did my little magic that way ( because I had the left over). This configuration in the Yuexiao is too strong. When I click the edge magnets towards the core to weaken them, it’s fine.
I like the 4x2 magnets in the corners of my 3x3s because they are heavier. Maybe it’s just in my head, but I like it.

Ps. Not a lot of feed back on this thread/forum. Wack Arnold!!

When I try to start my own thread/forum, it just gets moved to this dead one.
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.

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.

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.

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.

What Would be good magnets to use in the MF3RS2 and the Yuxin Little Magic.
I am thinking about buying some magnets to put in both of them but I'm not sure what ones to g

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.
