Group buy: high grade PTFE-coated cylindrical magnets
Hi all! I'm new here. A friend of mine asked me to host a group buy for teflon coated Alnico 5 magnets from BOLA, as they don't sell to individuals (I have a registered company).
Several people on the IRC have already said they want some, so I was wondering if anyone else here was interested. The price is about 1.53 euro each for 5x2 magnets (length x dia, in mm), or 1.23 euros per 7x2 magnet, excluding the shipping to you (which will probably be less than 3 euros per person). The magnets are FDA conform and have excellent universal chemical resistance. They are sold as stirring bars, which means they are made to endure a lot of mechanical stress.
We picked these because they would be easy to implant by injecting them using a hypodermic needle, removing the need for scalpels or suturing. The cylindrical shape should also significantly reduce the chance of the magnet flipping around inside the finger.
There are also other sizes available. 8x2 costs 1.44, 6x3 costs 1.20. There's a minimum order amount of 10 for sizes other than 5x2, unless others are interested in the same size too.
Let me know if anyone is interested in a bunch of these. I accept wire transfer, PayPal and Bitcoin.
