Hi David,
Don't be playing around with those magnets or you will end up doing what I did several years ago, you'll end up pinching a chunk out of your finger. Strong little devils aren't they. I think I still have one stuck inside my truck bed.

Scrap transformer lams and ignition coils are good as well, or iron wire from a florist - you could stretch it so it is completely straight, chop it up, set it in epoxy to the size you want, then saw and file the ends.
In my "Murday" clock I used mild steel and left it in the fire for a few days - there seems to be no trace of magnetism after 10 years' use.
