    Looks great. I couldn't work out how the resistors were put in there. Are they just in parallel accross the 2 terminals or something?

    I always thought that the resistor went in series on 1 of the legs but if that was the case it would have to be between the magnet and the leg which I can't see how he did that. Can anyone illuminate this problem :groan:

    what he did was make a loop on one of the legs

    when it had all set, he cut the loop and put a resistor in

    this means it is in series, took me a while to work out what he was doing, beacause it also looked to me like he had put them accross both terminals at first

    I meant Q-Branch. he said nice things like: I know you ignorance come from inexperience. I attribute you arrogance to the fact you must be an american. Now pay attention.

    ahhh right

    well it seems that q-branch did the original "electro-gaf"

    IMO the magnetic fridge magnets have been made a lot better

    its all a bit of a stupid argument really, seems to be turning into mini flame wars instead of actually answering peoples questions
