Is there a diy guide to home magnet coating?
I've looked everywhere and at most I've seen people discuss different manufacturers and different coating materials.
I've seen that some people on here do small batches and allow people to go in on them once they are made aware of the risk of failure and infection, but, I've never seen a guide, or any documentation at all really, on the matter of making them.
I know that some of the processes involve a multi-part molding/casting process. Others are out of the question because they require cost prohibitive equipment. I'm not looking for anything definitive, just general points of reference or documentation of tried processes or research.
I'm asking because I bought several of those small gold coated high strength magnets from gaussboys a while back and have been puzzling out how to go about experimenting with coatings. I of course wouldn't implant anything I haven't done extensive testing on first, but I have equipment to test anything if I just knew how to go about experimentally coating them.
I have a home lab that has several magnets, chemicals, metal/plastic/glass tools and equipment including test tubes and beakers, microscope and camera equipment, 3D printer, mold release spray, smooth-on 2 part silicone for molding and casting, and a whole electrical station with reflow station and variable power supply.
I'm in a good position to buy materials within a certain budget as well.
If you have made home coated magnets, or know of a guide or documentation on the matter I'd be super thankful if you could link them below and discuss them.
