Hi all,

I'm working with a pair of multi-pole neodymium ring magnets (rated ~119lbF) and finding that if the opposing poles are forced together, with the magnets in alignment, that at very close range (may be a millimeter or two apart?) the two magnets will suddenly snap together as if one has reversed polarity. There is NO electric current involved, but the only resources I am finding about this phenomenom are related to electromagnets and induced magnetism.

Can anyone point me to a source explaining what's happening?

Thank you!
