Looking for an M31 or the like
So very recently I became interested in implanting a small magnet in my hand, and I looked around, but I really didn't find any coatings that seemed to have no negative bodily effects (all rejections seem to be user error or incompatibility, the TiN coating seems to have a very very low change of actually damaging tissues.)
That said, the dangerousthings site hasn't been selling them for a while. I want to know if there is anywhere I can obtain an N52 TiN coated magnet, M31 or similar.
I'd appreciate any help. This will be a self implant.
Basicly you have three choices I know of Steve's, Alex's, amal's. All three are implantable and Steve is (i believe) the only autoclaved. The others are sterilized by other means that will not take away some of the magnetism.
My m31 lost its magnetism after a year and it's far less comfortable since my body formed a callous around it. My Haworth floats freely under thin, pliable skin.
I've had the Haworth magnet longer than any other implant.
Proteus suggested that I try to remagnetize it by rubbing a strong magnet over the surface repeatedly. Has anyone done a remagnetization in vivo?
how do these magnets loose their magnetism? has anyone tested after removing them? or they decay in the body because of the failure of the coating
So I eventually pull mine last month, and it turns out it had in fact breached. A while ago too judging by how it looked. Things have been a little hectic since so I hadn't had time to get the pics together for a post yet but, I probably should/could soon.
@BirdMachine How bad was it when you pulled it? It felt normal other than the loss of magnetism?
It was pretty bad. Here's some pics of it, after I started cleaning off a layer of flesh that bubbled it up https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B0BeBrCDu_kkUXVVY25zcW51WTQ It had lost magnetism a bit over a year ago by that point I think, and while it was dark and raised it never actually pushed all the way out through the skin. Never hurt, no signs of poisoning.
It almost looks like it was damaged somehow, but I can't recall impacting it at all. I've had mystery injuries before so I won't rule it out, though.
Oh god that does look a little rough. When you say it was dark, you mean darker than the new M31s? And it does look like it'd been damaged, but you'd think TiN wouldn't be so fragile. I get paranoid that the coating on mine has ruptured and it's concerning that sometimes there are so few signs.
