  1. How We Ship Monster Magnets

    How We Ship Monster Magnets
    Shipping magnets ordinarily isn’t a problem. With proper packaging and timely delivery, we can have your Apex Magnet’s order at your door within two days. But when it comes to shipping large, powerful magnets, problems can arise as they travel from metal truck to metal truck. Our large neodymium magnets are capable of attracting metal through several layers of ordinary packing material. Instead of forcing your mail carrier to pry the magnetic package off the metal truck with a crowbar, we carefully pack our rare earth magnets such as the 6” x 2” disc magnet so they are more convenient for travel. Here’s how we do it: Continue reading →

    12 Places To Find Magnets At Home
    Magnets are used in a variety of different ways. From holding notes on your refrigerator to powering industrial equipment, magnets have a diverse range of applications. You may be surprised at how often you use magnets without realizing it. Other than the cute magnets holding photos on your fridge, can you find all of the other ways magnets are used in your home? Check out our infographic to get started:     Continue reading →
  3. What To Do With Monster Magnets

    What To Do With Monster Magnets
    You can use small neodymium magnets for any number of simple crafts and DIY projects, but what about huge, monster magnets? Scary magnets are large and usually used for industrial purposes or for science experiments in a laboratory. This is because they are dangerous to handle. The most important thing to remember about these large magnets is that they can be much more difficult to control than smaller magnets. You should be very careful while using magnets and follow magnet safety guidelines. But there are a few things you can do with scary magnets at home as long as you are careful. Continue reading →
  4. Common Ways Magnets Have Been Used Throughout History

    Common Ways Magnets Have Been Used Throughout History
    Magnets are ancient. They’re so old the actual discovery of magnetism is somewhat of a legend. It is said that about 4,000 years ago, a shepherd named Magnes was out herding his sheep when his metal staff and the nails in his shoes stuck to a black rock. That black rock was magnetite and it contained lodestone. Since then, our use of magnets has evolved in hundreds of different ways. In this blog, we are going over some of the most common ways magnets have been used throughout time. Continue reading →
  5. Tips to Separate High Powered Magnets

    Tips to Separate High Powered Magnets
    Some of our magnets are strong, really strong. If you’ve ever ordered any neodymium magnets from us, or have simply experimented with high powered magnets, you know that once opposite poles attract, it can be tough to separate them. Also, getting in the way of two attracting poles is dangerous and could result in broken glass or bones. When using strong magnets it is important to follow safety rules and tips. Below are some tips that we have compiled for separating strong magnets. Continue reading →
  6. What is Gauss Rating and How to Use a Gauss Meter

    What is Gauss Rating and How to Use a Gauss Meter
    First, to understand what a gaussmeter is, we need to know what gauss rating means. Gauss is the unit that measures magnetic field B, or magnetic flux density. It was named for the German mathematician and physicist that built the early instrument to measure magnetic fields, Carl Friedrich Gauss. His version was essentially a bar magnet suspended by some string. Continue reading →

  8. How Are Neodymium Magnets Made?

    How Are Neodymium Magnets Made?
    Magnetism may interact with the Earth’s natural magnetic field, however, today’s magnets are not formed naturally. One of the only naturally occurring magnets is lodestone, but its magnet strength is too weak for use in practical applications. Modern magnets are much stronger, because they are created from alloys of ferromagnetic metals, which include: iron, nickel, cobalt and a few others. Ferromagnetism actually means the ability for certain materials to be magnetic or magnetized. Continue reading →

    How to Enter Our Everyday Magnets Photo Contest
    Believe it or not, the functionality of magnets reaches far beyond just adorning your fridge. We use magnets everyday and so often that we may not even realize that we are using them. Honestly, our lives would be very different without magnetism. For instance, magnets are used in head phones, computers, cars, recycling centers, blenders, handbags and much more. Even now, inventors, scientists and researchers are looking towards magnetism for use in several medical and technological innovations such as the treatment of cancer and depression. Often, when customers contact us with magnet or other product questions, we also get to hear about the creative and exciting projects that they are working on. But, we’d also like to see their projects and end results. How have you used magnets? Share a photo of your magnet projects with us in our “Everyday Magnets Photo Contest” and you’ll also be entered for the chance to win $100. Continue reading →
  10. Magnet Safety: Technology That You Should Never Put Near High Powered Magnets

    Magnet Safety: Technology That You Should Never Put Near High Powered Magnets
    We love magnets, but we also don’t underestimate their power. With that in mind, there are a few things that you should never place near them. This is especially true with technology. Today’s computers and other devices are often comprised of magnetic materials, meaning that they can be destroyed when they come face-to-face with high powered magnets. Below we have listed a few tech items that you should keep away from magnets and what may happen if they do come in contact with one. Continue reading →
