    Hi, I wish these titles could be a bit longer since that would have made more sense.

    First, rare earth magnets. I have never used them, I have read alot about them but I have some concerns. Discussions about colliding, blistering, self destroying magnets aside there is supposed to be a toxicity level to them; do you need special handling of them? Can you coat them in apoxy sculpt to reduce combustable super flying magnets and prevent toxins from leaving them?

    Also, I am a sheet metal technician by trade and I am thinking it might be fun to build that big decepticon Devastator for the spring out of sheet metal, I wonder if apoxy sculpt will adhere to metal? I assume it could be simply drilled to leave some room for the sculpt to move into and that would prevent alot of catastrophes right there.

    Anyone have drilling tips without a drill press to get pins into joints?
