    One question, is that a button battery on the bottom or a metal spacer. Many many moons ago we built small electric motors in science class but they were more complicated, that is so much nicer and easier.

    It's a Rare Earth Magnet.

    They are all over ebay in every imaginable size. Prices are all over the place. Search Lowest Price + Shipping & Buy It Now as options.

    They are incredibly powerful. Just search Ebay for Rare Earth Magnets or
    Neodymium Magnets

    The larger size ones that are about 1/2" thick 1.5" wide X 3" long - I got my skin of my hand caught between two of those and I could not get them apart without getting a screwdriver in there and ripping my skin up.

    If you do decide to buy some larger size ones (and they are not cheap) DO be careful. Watch this VID that I found on YouTube and you'll see what I had to do to get my skin out from between two that were slightly larger than these in the VID.

    And...keep them away from your electronics & computer etc. These bad boys are tough!

    I like that.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    These really powerful magnets can be really useful. I wanted to put one in my BOB but, I thought it might permanently screw up my compass because it was affecting it from over a foot away.

    Looks like you just found the solution to the energy problem.
