Sound boards and neodymium magnets?
« on: December 29, 2019, 05:16:18 AM »
Hey all

So, here's another question in my patented range of Daft Questions with Obvious Answers (In Hindsight) :

Will having small (3mm diameter) neodymium magnets around a modern saber sound board (ie, all of 'em, all the Plecters, Proffie, DIYino, NEC, Hasbro, any current existing saber controller) have any real effect on how that saber works in any way?

I ask because I've been designing a lot of chassis lately with small removable pieces held in place exclusively with tiny magnets (speaker cups, crystal chamber doors, and the like) and I can't shake this feeling in the back of my mind that having all these marvels of prop technology held within range of high powered magnets for extended periods of time is a bad thing.

It shouldn't be an issue, unless you short something with that rather conductive nickel shell.

Shouldn't be much problem with that, I tend to design/drill oversized holes, put a magnet in, then flood the whole area with CA glue and spray kicker onto it. The magnets hold perfectly, and there's very little chance of shorting.
