  • @Beano My idea was to apply resin on one of the magnets before putting them together, squishing the resin between the two and forming a seal. The primary defense will still be TiN except for the area between the two magnets.
  • @HalfHuman SMM magnets say they do a double coat of TiN to eliminate holes created by hang points during the first coating process. I’m sure you could ask them to add more coatings if you get in contact with a rep. @Beano I didn’t think about the…
  • I’m thinking about stacking 2 or 3 TiN coated 3mm x 1mm magnets for my next implant for lifting. I think it would be a cool experiment to test my hypothesis as well.
  • I’m not entirely certain on this, but I think the amount of sensitivity depends on how many nerve ending “wrap around” your magnet. Smaller magnets tend to have more sensitivity because there’s more room for them to wrap around or near it. For a lif…
  • I’ve implanted one. Here’s the link to my experience: https://forum.biohack.me/discussion/2341/supermagnetman-magnet-n55-tin-implant#latest You’ll probably run into an issue that I’ve ran into where the edge of one side of each magnet have a dark…
  • As much as I hate to admit it, I’m almost certain this TiN magnet I implanted isn’t going to be permanent. Hell, I’d be pretty happy if I got a year out of it. I do hope to increase the lifespan of an upcoming magnet implant by doing a similar resin…
  • So far so good with the SMM magnet. Can’t vouch for Haworth’s since I don’t have it but his seems a little pricey(understandably)
  • Day 3-6: Healing nicely. Gaining sensation. Nerves are still messed up on my finger and a pale spot(likely of dead skin) where the magnet is. Otherwise, each day I feel a little more sensitivity. I’ve also quit wearing the steristrip and bandaid.
  • So far, so good, not really any signs of rejection and no significant bruising either. The only thing is a bunch of dead skin but that’s good as new skin develops. I’ve been insulating the finger in a band-aid for the whole day but when changing the…
  • Update: Since the saline solution test was a success, I decided to abuse the magnet to see what it could take. However, I got some unexpectedly great results. After attempting to rub the side that looked like it was exposed; something weird happened…
  • @dieselpwr I’m implanting in my non-dominant ring finger simply since I use it the least
  • After a few days in the saline bath, there’s no visible change to the coating, especially in the suspicious area. However, I noticed a tiny black magnetic spec on the magnet. Initially I thought it was part of the magnet degrading until I thought it…
  • I opened the rest of the packs of magnets(I ordered 20 but they accidentally sent me 30) and there’s actually some magnets that look promising. They still have a side that looks like a small black ring on the edge but it’s not nearly as pronounced a…
  • So far, it looks the same as it did yesterday, I went ahead and ordered some epoxy(https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00EPYB93Y/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_vYtjBbHFE83YS) and I’ll apply it specifically to the area that looks suspicious(however, I’ll try multiple dif…
  • I was the one who ordered 30. Well, I technically ordered and purchased only 20 for a larger sample than a single 10-pack, however, I was surprised to find an extra pack in my package in the mail!
  • @Cassox I'm not sure yet, @dieselpwr said he emailed SMM magnets and told me that they double coat their magnets. I'm testing the magnet in the picture in saline solution as of now and I'll check back later tomorrow. If the possibly exposed side is …
  • I got them, but there's at least one edge on each magnet that has a questionable coating. Check out the pictures here: https://forum.biohack.me/discussion/2311/which-coating-for-a-magnet-should-i-purchase#latest
  • Alright so i got the magnets and they're really powerful for their size. However, I'm concerned about the edges of the coating. Every magnet has at least one side where the edges looks like it could be exposed. I'm going to do an experiment in salin…
  • That’s good news to hear! You should ask to purchase a set too in your email. It’s pretty cheap (a 10 pack costs $10.80). The UPS shipment tracker said mine is delivered, I’ll inspect them and post some close up pictures once I’m off work.
  • Not to mention that their N55, great for both lifting and sensing! My only concern is that I forgot to mention in my emails to the accounting rep at SMM that it needs to be a completely even coat (which may not happen with only one coating due to ha…
  • I’m so excited to get the early batch! I’ll probably make another post about it once it delivers. In the mean time, I’ve been trying to think of the best way to test a TiN magnet too and I’ve run across this: https://forum.biohack.me/discussion/1872…
  • As I talk about in my other post, I’ve emailed a manager at SuperMagnetMan and was able to purchase an early batch of TiN coated magnets. They’re shipping now and hopefully the coating will be a lot better than what most people fine SMM Parylene coa…
  • Update: After quite a few back and forth emails with one of the account managers at SMM magnets, I’ve been able to get one of the early batches of TiN coated magnets and it’s shipping right now. Hopefully these are better than what people say the Pa…
  • I've emailed them a few weeks ago and they said, as of June 1st, the TiN magnets would be released in 1 - 2 weeks. As of today, they're still not in stock. I'm considering purchasing a few dozen of their Parylene magnets and testing all of them in a…
