I got 100 rare earth magnets (http://www.rare-earth-magnets.com/detail-ID-121.html) for $15 after shipping. I measured with a dial caliper to see how big they were and they look to be small enough to fit inside Terminator arms. They should arrive tomorrow, so I'll post up some pics when they get here. I couldn't fine anyone to locally source them so had to internet order em!

It'd be nice to see how this price compares with other places around the internet, as RadioShack stopped carrying magnets :(

radioshack overprices most things though. Last time I looked they were selling LEDs for about $1 a light. That's like, what, a 1000% profit margin? :p
For magnets I use K and J magnetics (http://www.kjmagnetics.com/). It ends up being the same price, though. $12 for 100 N52 magnets and then shipping is pretty lax so anywhere from $14-16 is the final price (can't remember off the top of my head)
