Uses for our Alnico Horseshoe Magnets:
The show pony of the ever extending magnet family, alnico horseshoe magnets are shaped like an actual shoe for a horse, but are designed in order to focus or concentrate the maximum amount of magnetic power.
Often the first magnet encountered in primary classrooms and science laboratories in higher education across the world, horseshoe magnets are the perfect magnet for demonstrating magnetisms unusual and deeply curious powers. The shape, a horseshoe, coupled with the magical seeming qualities of magnetism only adds to the mystique.
The horseshoe in mythology is considered lucky and is kept as a talisman to ward off evil spirits when nailed to the front door of a home. Suspended inside the home, suspicion holds that horseshoes are capable of attracting good luck that may be floating past. A horseshoe pointing upwards is said to act as a vessel for this passing luck, a luck trap! Others point the ends downward, insisting the luck showers directly onto their person.
Scrap metal dealers use an oversize, attention seeking horseshoe magnet, erected as a sign to attract customers. Huge fake horseshoe magnets as advertising signs remind potential customers of their stock and trade, to buy metal goods, (or goods containing metallic materials).
Some fast merchants choose to place a huge donut outside their fast food business. When confronted by a monstrous donut with a smiling face, pointing a horseshoe magnet at passers-by, the merchant is hoping you will be drawn into the shop and buy a donut.
- Bought for a birthday presentThis magnet shows my lack of spatial ability to which I agree absolutely. I bought this for my 10 year old grandson who is interested in science and how things work.
What I did mean to buy him was the very tall horseshoe magnet and I am going to order one of those. I'll still give him the small horseshoe magnet as a comparison. When I looked at the measurements of the horseshoe magnet I thought it was the tall one but my spatial ability let me down.....again!
