Buyer's Guide: Your first neodymium magnet

Neodymium magnets are so powerful that you should watch this before buying one. I give guidelines for size, shape, grade and coating. In this way you hopefully will have a good start with a nice beginner magnet.

I have no personal experiences with magnet webshops outside Europe. For US/Canada it seems that http://www.magnet4less.com has the best selection at very fair prices. I haven't found any sample sets in their webshop though.

Another cheap source for neo magnets are scrapped hard disk drives. It can be tricky to open the drives though and the magnets are specialized. Here's my video about them: https://youtu.be/ep_VCotA1ZY
