Default Re: Magnets iz weeeeird...

Your magnets are probably diametrically magnetized. The rivet is metal therefore it either pulls to a side of the magnet or it pushes it away due to opposite polarization.

You'd need the ones that are axially magnetized. They would be the ones that could be "flipped over" to change the polarization that you need to not "push" away your rivet.
