Neodymium magnets

Postby Andy W » Mon Feb 04, 2019 1:44 pm

I picked up a pack of 24 tiny (1.5 x 3mm) Neodymium magnets with the thought of using them for things like securing carriage roofs etc. But could they cause problems with "twitchy" servos; point motors etc?

Since you already have them, put some temporarily in appropriate places (bluetack) and test it out. I would think it highly unlikely that there would be any problem, locos full of magnets already run around, interference with servos usually comes from electric currents rather than passing magnetic fields.
