Hi all,

I have an idea for a project whereby I there would be an electromagnet pulling on a metal weight through wood. So:

Electromagnet -> Wood -> Metal

The basic idea is to stick things to wood with electromagnets. Can anyone recommend a material that could be bonded to the Metal what would offer exceptional grip/friction (to avoid slippage) but not mark or scratch the wood?

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Chris

How has the timber surface been prepared? Is it polished or rough and hairy.

Maybe a surface of very fine hairs, such as velvet, that will hold the irregularities in the surface?
