    So one of my magnets apparently wasn't glued in properly and has popped out and subsequently been lost. Does anyone know where I can get an exact match? Or what the specifications are?

    Robo can send them to you, they're like 50c each so I'd suggest get a couple for insurance. If you call their help line just get to the parts Dept and ask if they can just throw a couple in an envelope for you regular mail. If it's FedEx shipping it's more expensive. I just had to get one of my y-axis bars replaced and the little magnet price was shown in the email.

    It's frustrating having one tiny part missing you have no idea where to get! I lost one of the z-axis switch screws, have no clue where to find such a tiny part, just made do with the one.

    They are rare earth neodymium magnets, even Hobby Lobby has them in their crafts aisle called "Super Magnets". They are good for a number of uses and you can buy them in bulk from many Chinese websites. Nearly 100% of these magnets originate in China since it has the largest sources and active mining of rare earth compounds.
