Magnetic number "kits"

Post by Bill Martin » Thu Nov 29, 2018 11:30 am

The CalClub RallyX program is considering making magnetic numbers, or equivalent, mandatory. They would be sold as needed at tech. Considering options, I recall seeing magnetic number kits composed of multiple short rectangular magnetic pieces which the driver arranges into numbers. I don't know if that will meet the needs, but does anyone have a commercial source for those? We'd only have to stock a good number of those instead of trying to out-guess what digits to buy.

Thanks, Bill

It sounds like just a white rectangle with a black number on it, not cut out magnetic numbers, right? I can do that. Just need to know what size and quantity and I can give you a quote. I know there is online places, too. And what about Jason Woodruff?

That would be the other possibility. Problem is keeping needed quantities of all the digits. Can you PM me your contact info and I'll pass along to the program chairman.

What I was asking about has no numerals-- you make them "digital-style" from magnetic strips. I've seen them, but don't know where to buy them. I at least want a picture so I can show him. It's hard to explain with text.

Like this, where you just have the little segments to make the numbers from?

That's it. You only have to stock a single part.
