I have a little project/experiment that I’m planning wherein I will make a magnetic pseudo-monopole. (Just for the heck of it.)
I went up to Michael’s yesterday and bought a 2 1/2’’ diameter wooden craft ball, and I want to embed 60 1/4’’ diameter x 1/8’’ thick NdFeB magnets evenly on the surface of the sphere, as shown in the n=60 triangulated diagram on this page.
My problem is that I need to be able to mark those points on the sphere for drilling, but I have no idea how to do it. Does anyone have any idea of how I might go about doing this? Thanks in advance for any help; this has me stumped.
