IAmA Magnet Engineer. I answer questions about magnets for a living.
While I work mostly with neodymium magnets, I answer emails with questions about all kinds of magnets as part of my job. From artists and crafters making fridge magnets to engineers designing magnets into products, there seem to be a lot of questions about magnets.
As the engineer behind a monthly blog article/demo about magnets, I thought it would be cool to talk about magnets here on reddit. Let's talk magnets -- Ask me anything!
EDIT: Wow, this has been a lot of fun! Thanks so much for a great bunch of questions and conversations. I do have to go get a little work done before the day ends! Feel free to add on, I should be able to check in at the end of the day.
You can usually find me lurking here or in askScience, or at kjmagnetics.com.
