    Magnets falling out of iConnect

    The magnets don't want to stay in my iConnect base and probes. What's the best adhesive I can use to hold them in? Superglue is too brittle, or else it doesn't stick to both the plastic and the metal, in any case it didn't work. Rubber cement? Gorilla glue?

    I'll try it on one of the probes, but last time I used it I found that it got hard and cracked eventually.

    I'm going to try this out, got some 3M stuff on order now. It makes sense that this sort of adhesive would remain somewhat pliable after curing, which should prevent this issue of hardening and cracking loose over time.

    I like E6000 for stuff like that. I just use a fluke magnet with it now.

    Hot glue usually fails in a short period of time, if it works. that has been my experience.
    The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and stamps EVER.
    Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals". Their stated reason for this policy "... the animals become dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves."
