New threaded pole magnet for the construction of widerange style pickups or for coming up with your own pickup design! Sold to pickup makers that can construct their own bobbins.

*Looking for SAE 10-32? A metric M5x.8 is very close to a SAE 10-32. Close enough that our supplier does list these as 10-32. It can be hit or miss on whether these will thread into a SAE 10-32 tapped hole. It is best to use a m5 x .8 tap when using these threaded rod magnets. In most cases, these can be press fit or even make their own theads in a slug side plastic humbucker bobbin without any problem.

**These threaded magnets are supplied unmagnetized since some might want the slotted magnetized north and other end south.

    Not perfect, but a great product!

    The fact that these exist at all is a very very good thing. They're nicely made, and above and beyond anything else...they work.

    Everything else is kinda secondary, right?

    However...having said that, one might have some difficulties with these *depending upon your intended application*.

    The problem is, they're a little undersized. Major diameter spec for a class 2A thread, size 10-32, is 0.1891 max/0.1831 min (class 3A is a little bigger).

    Most of the screws I've got lying around are 0.187 - 0.188. These are advertised as 0.182, but mine actually measure 0.180. They're awfully loose in a tapped hole. I'm using some in DiMarzio pickups, replacing the #10 set screws with these, and they actually fell out of the bobbins until I potted them in.

    They're also not consistent in length - mine have about 0.02 total variance, shortest-to-longest. Not a big deal in most applications, but worth mentioning.

    But like I said, they work, and they're the only game in town. And they're priced right, in my opinion.
