DIY Magnetic Implant Coating
Hello. I am going to be implanting a 2x1mm N35 neodymium disk magnet in my left ring finger. For my implant I purchased un-coated magnets as I do not have the money for pre-coated magnets. I am aware that neither of the coatings I am thinking of using are preferable, I just want to know if they would work and which one will work better. I was thinking either:
- Hot glue (the hot-melt glue sticks used with a glue gun)
- JB Weld (not sure if this is bio-compatible, but if it is, it'd be great because it is very strong.)
Alexsmith is the only one I know is selling magnets atm, and for what its worth my chamber is a pickle jar and my magnetron is a speaker that I cut up when I was taking apart a TV. My point is if you look at it from simplest terms rocket science is just basic algebra. (Not really but you get the point)
Currently Out of stock, however, BUT I think they are forecasting a few months before they have their hands on something. They aren't gone forever.
If NOTHING else, this is a good place to get a little information on the nature of TiN coating. https://dangerousthings.com/shop/m31-implantable-disc-magnet/ specifically.
I am also looking for a pair of these. But waiting time. v-v
I absolutely refuse to settle for anything less than a very stable and robust construction done by someone who knows what they are doing (by extension, not myself. >~<). I'm hesitant to try myself out of lack of time to dedicate to it, and I'm extremely particular on quality control. That's my own preference. But all research done, to be unbiased and make a reasonable suggestion beyond my own personal perfectionism, you REALLY don't want to botch the coating. These magnets are toxic without their coating, and the materials will fall apart.
Rejection is unideal by itself, and can still happen even provided having a perfect magnet that was completely inert. There is no need to add more failure points.
Definitely take your time to figure out perfection with this if you are going to be doing it. ^^
My best idea atm is DOT 5.1 break fluid. Don't worry I am not going to be using it in a diffusion pump.
@JohnDoe To test my coating, I am going to plate two or more
magnets (as many as needed for testing, and a final one for implanting). As said by Adam Savage, “The difference
between screwing around and science is writing it down.” So, based on that, I
will record my procedure for every magnet I plate. After I finished plating a
magnet, I will take a scratch test to determine the thickness and drop the
magnet from about 2 ft. to make sure it isn't too brittle. After I get a good
result, I will repeat the steps taken for the best result to produce the magnet
that will be implanted (obviously, I won't be scratching or dropping this one).
@Benbeezy I will have to look into that stuff. If the
stainless steel doesn't work out, I will definitely give that a try.
Eager to see what happens with it. ^^
Hopefully m31's are going to be floating about soon, if you are looking for an ideal magnet, they are still the most ideal magnet I've found myself throughout looking around...
Hmm... Carbon... idea, and I think someone was already developing something for this. Perhaps growing a crystalline structure of some variety around one? A layer of diamond would be ridiculously strong. Or even something less intense but still solid may be good. ^^
