    He all I am placing an order for some neodymium magnets. If anyone is interested in piggy backing on the order. Here is the site: www.magnet4sale.com. I have ordered from here before and the counter sunk magnets work great for hanging panels on tanks with steel frame stands. Let me know I plan to order later today.

    I'm looking to do this. which magnets do you recommend @MuralReef ? Size and strength? Do you get the countersunk to put a screw thru it?

    I do get the countersunk. I’d have to look up the exact ones I’ve used but I know they are 1” round x 1/4” thick. I chose the round ones since I don’t have the proper tools to make the rectangular holes.

    It also gives a weight rating per magnet that can help serve as a guide.

    I think I used 90 lb magnets on my wood over my metal stand. They are the counter sunk type. Works perfectly!
