Group Buy: N52 Nd Au & Parylene-C Coated Magnets
I have been posting a bit of info I got on a Nd magnet quote in the Who Wants Smaller Magnets thread and it has drawn some interest so I am making this thread to let more people know about the order. I know I am new around here and if someone who is a veteran wants to run it that is fine, I understand that from many group buys I have participated in on other forums. So to the good part.
I have a quote from a US company for some cylindrical NdFeB N52 magnets with a Ni-Cu-Ni-Au-Parylene C coating that are 1/16" (1.57mm) x 1/8" (3.18mm). The Parylene coating is applied via LPCVD at room temperature and is ~20 microns thick. The minimum order is 395 pcs at $.38 each for a total of $150 + shipping. The next discount isn't until 1000 pcs and that is $.35 but that's a lot of magnets.
So far with myself included there is interest in 150 pcs out of 400. I can always go higher if there is enough interest.
There is a 7-9 week lead time on the order since these are being custom made so I would like to place the order reasonably soon. I will keep track of quantity and when I get reasonably close to 400 (or higher if needed) I'll go ahead and place the order and when I get them we'll work out the payment details, but the one thing I will request is payment before I ship them. But there's at least 7weeks to worry about that. So reply to this thread or PM me if interested. I'll also keep things transparent and post the quote, the PO, and the like to show how things are coming along.
