When you think of Easter, what is the first thing that springs to mind? If you’re like us, the answer is chocolate! Conveniently, we are only days away until we have a guilt free pass to eat as much chocolate as possible, where we can swap healthy lunches and calorie counting for indulging, mouthwatering Easter eggs!
While you relax and indulge in chocolaty goodness, have you ever wondered how Easter eggs get their unique, hollow shape? Yes? Thought so. Read on and we will explain how magnets are used during the manufacturing process…
On a cold winter’s day in Northamptonshire in early January, Magnet Expert joined James Haskell and the BBC on a magnetic fishing trip.
Following James’ magnet fishing excursions last summer, where he found 3 safes, a bike and various other bits with our RM150 fishing kit, the BBC wanted to see magnet fishing up close and personal.
In 2016, a record 1.9 million British holidaymakers took an ocean cruise, travelling to all corners of the globe in search of sun, sea (obviously, being on a cruise) and sand. Final figures for 2017 are expected to show further growth in the cruising industry, with the average age of consumers continuing to fall year on year.
In anticipation of your holiday at sea, you need to pack the essentials as well as the ‘just in case’ items, which can amount to a whole lot of luggage! Ask a friend or family member to sit on your case, zip it up and you’re ready to go.
Once on-board the luxury liner, you need to make your cabin your own for the duration of the trip. As well as being magnet experts, we are actually self-proclaimed cruise experts, and one common issue we’ve found is the lack of storage space with budget rooms.
However, we’ve found a solution.
Magnet Expert Ltd are delighted to have supported the BBC’s D.I.Y SOS on one of their recent projects in West Sussex.
In early May 2017, D.I.Y SOS contacted the Magnet Expert team in regards to a home renovation they were working on. Upon hearing about the project, it’s safe to say we couldn’t wait to get involved. The home belonged to Amanda and her family, which was in desperate need of change following a tragic accident for Amanda.

Welcome to the penultimate episode of our Experts’ Favourite Magnets series. It’s a sad day as we conclude our 5th and final post. Fortunately, we have Mr David Gault, the Head of Production at Magnet Expert, revealing his favourite magnet to us today!
But before we get started, lets recap the last few weeks. We started off with Juan who was a big fan of the Feel Flux Skills! Then we moved onto the Head of Sales & Marketing, Mr Simon Elliott whose favourite magnet was the Neodymium Clamping Magnet with an M5 Hook and Eyebolt. Thirdly, Eric Styles, our longest serving expert told us he favoured the Magnetic Cable Tie for all its uses. Most recently, Nathan ‘Mason’ Wallace showcased the Rubber Coated Pot Magnets to us.
Today, we’ll hear David fight his case for his favourite magnet but before we begin, he’s a little about him…
