Ø Please be careful ! These magnets are very STRONG and will pinch fingers or possibly shatter if allowed to smack one another.
Ø To remove the clear post from the base, simply turn the post and pull. No tools are needed, as the post is a tight fit into the base.
Ø Press clear label holder firmly to base. This will allow sufficient friction to hold the aluminum specimen labels available from www.meteoritelabels.com
Ø Be aware these magnets tend to “grab” at high iron specimens. Use care with weak or fragile specimens.
Ø Experiment with specimen position on magnet for best stability and appeal. If needed, add a larger magnet to hold specimen to post.
Please note: All of the Meteorite display systems employ strong N40 nickel-plated magnets. Care must be used not to expose any magnetic based storage devices such as desktop or laptop computers, hard drives, floppy disks, cassette tapes, VHS tapes, or credit cards within a distance of 12" to the magnets. If you or someone in your household has a PACEMAKER or another electronic surgical implant, please ask your doctor about possible risks to strong magnet fields. Some collectors / scientists may take issue using strong magnets on fresh finds and I agree, however my personal opinion is that most specimens have already lost their magnetic scientific value long before we, the collectors, ever see them. With that said, please use your own discretion.
