Subject: SOS assembly 

On Thursday, I glued another set of 6 dumbells+magnets using the same method as before. I made sure that dumbells are pressed onto the magnets.

I came in today to check the gluing situation. The situation looks much better than before. It seems like the glue is stable against small forces (magnetic etc.). I checked the assemblies under a microscope.

It seems like I used excessive amounts of glue (attachment 1,2). The surfaces of the dumbells were also contaminated (attachment 3). I cleaned the dumbells' surfaces using acetone and IPO (attachment 4) and scratched some of the glue residues from the sides of the assemblies.

Next time, I will make a shallow bath of glue to obtain precise amounts using a needle.

I glued a sample assembly on a metal bracket using epoxy. Once it cures I will hang a weight on the dumbell to test the gluing strength.
