Many retailers sell sets of diversely shaped supermagnets. This is just one example.
I like the Mr. Macho man set of magnets - and the additional set of warning labels in 6 languages which inform that injuries caused by playing with these magnets are both common and your own responsibility!

My setup was a store bought ski rack. It did have a lever to forcefully pry the center section off so the rack could be removed.

I have various magnets but these should be tested for each application. I bought some magnets from dx.com and aliexpress.com

Haha! Where have I been, too! Missed the end of the neodymium magnets subtopic.

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
