Magnet fishing is the act of throwing a large strong magnet into a body of water to find hidden metallic items. Many people think of it as the water’s equivalent of treasure hunting with a metal detector.
So what do you need to start magnet fishing? Simply a powerful magnet and a durable rope!
This product can be used for treasure hunting in the sea or a /river ... you never know what you may find! It’s also great for recovering keys lost down a drain or overboard from a boat.
Neodymium magnets are the most powerful of all permanent magnets. They are often known as “Super Magnets”. They are a permanent magnet made from an alloy of neodymium, iron, and boron. Amazingly, they were developed independently in 1984 by both General Motors and Sumitomo Special Metals.
These are the best type of magnet to use because they are super strong with an impressive pulling force. They are “rare earth” magnets, which are the world’s strongest commercially available magnets. The high-performance magnetism you get from neodymium magnets make them ideal for lifting heavy objects.
Neodymium magnets are the strongest type of permanent magnet available commercially. They have replaced other types of magnets in many applications in modern products that require strong permanent magnets, such as electric motors in cordless tools, hard disk drives and magnetic fasteners.
They are true permanent magnets and will not lose their magnetism unless they are heated to a temperature which exceeds the maximum operating temperature rating, or their protective plating is damaged, and water ingress causes rusting, which over time will magnetically and mechanically damage the magnets.
Neodymium magnets are relatively new, they can now be found extensively in countless modern applications from fridge magnets to wind turbines!
This neodymium magnet has a maximum pulling force of 300 kg. It is suitable for serious beginners and has a good casting weight.
It will attract all kinds of metal objects. Think of cannon balls, swords, safes and second world war materials. The magnet has a metal sleeve around it which makes it shockproof.
These magnets will literally JUMP out of your hand when attracted to other magnets or metal. Special care always needs to be taken when handling them. Neodymium magnets are very strong and can stick to an iron object very quickly. You absolutely do not want to clamp your fingers or any body parts between them. Please use these magnets very carefully.
