Dear Excabyte,
                              If you are worried about the magnets damaging the reeds, well I can assure you no harm will come to them. When I was a telecom engineer we used these in there millions and although occasionally they failed they can stand up to quite high voltage and at very fast speeds. The occasional failure I have had on my Mephisto exclusive is down to wear and tear or the odd rogue reed. Quite often the LED or blocking diode will fail when the reed is fine.
            regards,
                              Terry

don't know what Baron uses, but have used the K&J magnetics neodymium disc magnets in pieces for the Citrine, Leonardo, exclusive, grandmaster etc. the type "N" 3/8 by 1/16 work fine with all these machines for years 1/16th deep hole ,mount flush and covered with felt. never had a problem with any reed switch being over stressed. I did alot of testing with different discs to come up with that one and the field strength seems about perfect.  regards, Tony

I recently purchased the enhanced pieces for my Citrine.  I noticed that they fit beautifully with my Elite A/S Challenger, but I am concerned about the strength of the magnets.  Obviously, if it is too weak, they won't work, but if the magnets are too strong, could it damage the switches in tha A/S board?  Thanks.
