advice on coating my previously gold plated cylinder?
okay my lido has arrived (epi free) along with my sharps including a few scalpels and piercing needles in case i decide to use the needle method with one of the two types of magnets i have been looking at. i did as cassox said and found magnets that where gold coated and at n52. i intend to put one 1mm by 3mm cylinder in my ring finger and a 1.5mm by 3mm disk in my middle finger which should make it a little stronger than the m31 (but it will be fun to play with) on my left hand. i like the cylinder magnet because of all the hype on the site about their cylinders and i feel confident i can successfully implant it with a needle where as the other two magnets i'm less confident and more fearful of rejection however with enough time lurking around here i should be able to handle it. if not i should have at least one successful magnet. the only problem is i don't fully trust the thin layer of gold flash plating these magnets come with. i thought of getting a thicker gold plating put on or i've seen companies that can do parylene coatings at room temp. i assume these companies also have a minimum order that is probably out of my budget. so i guess i'm looking for advice on whether i should put on the thicker gold plating or a layer of parylene on the gold plating the magnets came with or maybe even both. also any companies that you guys have dealt with before for the parylene coating (or gold plating) or if you know companies that could do it for a reasonable price would be appreciated.i found a company that would put on another coat of gold for 5 dollars a piece but it will be brush plated on and idk how that will affect the quality. as always thank you guys so much for the input. im so excited and only waiting on my magnets to get here and then to coat them but the goal is to have these suckers in in three to four weeks.
