  • Thanks for your replies everyone. I ordered some of these magnets to test and inspect them further, and attempt an implant if I find a good one. I'm just getting tired of waiting for TiN coated magnets to become available again. I'll update with how the testing process goes.
  • LSD has been known to stop migraines, though due to the fact that it is illegal, no formal studies have been done and most of what we know about it is based on anecdotal evidence. However, many migraine drugs have similar structure and function to LSD, both acting on serotonin receptors.
  • I'm a little late, but I would also gladly participate in in vivo testing.
  • I would also like to be added to the list, thanks!
  • Yeah, especially with the rhodium plating it's going to put the cost up there. I already ordered these magnets so I'll be implanting one of them, it's just a question of how I will be coating it. I think rhodium is my best bet at this point, even though I'm not 100% sure about its saftey for implantation. But that puts the…
  • I've got some friends in the chemistry department at my local Uni, I will try to get myself a coating that reacts with the nickel. However, I just looked a bit more closeley under the magnet specifications from Gaussboys ( and they say…
  • Also, how bad is it exactly if the coating breaks? To my understanding, it is simply painful and the magnet needs to be cut out. Is this correct?
  • If I can get the magnet plated in rhodium than testing shouldn't be a problem as the coating will be thick and solid enough as is, but what sort of indication method are you referencing @Meanderpaul? Is there some sort of solution I can make to check if there is any weakness in the coating?Thank you all for your help!
