Magnetised Screaming Bell - Part 2 - Bell and Furnace

Now we're getting serious. The axle for the bell / furnace is completely removed, and replaced with 6 magnets (all 1/8" x 1/16" discs). Here is the detail:

Step 7 - glue a magnet in each half-arch's hole. You will need to make the hole a tiny bit larger, a round file comes in handy here.

Step 8 - making sure you're not getting the side wrong (a dry-fit is essential at this stage), put a magnet in each part of the yoke. Note in the pictures below which side to be flush with.

Step 9 - saw the bottom axle off and replace with two 1 x 2 mm discs (green arrow). Again make sure you get the magnets' sides right.

Steps 10, 11 and 12: glue two 1/8" x 1/16" magnets to either side of the bell's axle, having sawn the axle off first (pink arrows at the top). Drill a hole into the bell's top and insert a 1 x 2 mm magnet (green arrow). Finally, drill a hole in the Grey Seer's arm and insert a 2 x 0.4mm magnet in there (blue arrow at the bottom).
