    An alternative to the machine work is to use the inside of either a champion or parma gear puller, they are .625 id and magnetic steel.

    OK, all 10 are spoken for now. I am glad I could get some of these out to racers. I will post on here when they ship out. I am shooting for end of this week.

    Josh,
    Fantastic job on this "how-to". It's great to see other builders techniques. Keep up the great work bud.

    Thumbs up Wax Paper & A little Finesse

    Besides the machined “C” jigs; another method that works very well or better that I have used personally is as follows:

    Use the can the magnets will eventually reside in; make sure the ID is fully clean, cut a piece of wax paper slightly wider & taller than the magnets and place between the mags & can when initially gluing all segments together. Setting your oven temperature to <180F with Skinner or ACE magnet epoxy for 20-30 minutes will not melt the wax paper. After bonded; peel wax paper off from magnets/can and lightly sand the back of magnets/can to remove any wax residue. Note the orientation of each magnet set in relation to can side in order to produce the best combination matched to the can.

    This is one of the most accurate ways and one of my favorites; it allows the magnet segments to set correctly to the can ID with full contact, the wax paper accounts for the epoxy thickness resulting in a more even final hone.

    I guess you could call this procedure a “poor mans alternative” as well…
