Default Magnets

Well as you ahve probably guessed from the title of the thread I am looking for a reasonable sized scource of magnets, preferably uk based so that the price isn't driven to extortionate prices to to P&P.

I have bought a few sets of magnets from BitsandKits but I fond them just a little too small, sort of IG sized rather than CSM/SM. Any help much appreciated thanks in advance,

Ask KnB, I am sure he can get larger magnets from his supplier as well.

Otherwise all the sites I go to are in the US.

@ BitsandKits I was looking for disk shaped magnets at around 3mm x 1mm for my marines, as when I was looking at your website you had sets of 10 2x1 mm but they were just a little too small, and after looking again they are now 4mm, just found the 2mmx1mm magnets.

@Courage_Honour, thanks for that even though it had no relevance I just read it and it made my day after having a very long hard day at work.......

@jimmy gunn /facepalm self didnt even occur to me thanks for showing the painfully obvious.

@cruor angelus silicis thanks also havn't used those sites before, hadn't even heard of them, I ususaly just use Giftsforgeeks.org.uk which until today I have just noticed didnt have a magnet section so thanks once again for pointing out another painfully obvious way of buying magnets.

Thanks to everyone's input and will investiagte into the suggestions.

Quite simply: Amazingmagnets.com

Any size, any shape, cheap, and great customer service. What else could you want? And they send a little demo bundle with each order to see the different sizes and shapes for other applications! I guess it would be nice if was UK based, but eh, plan ahead and make one large order!
