Just google "disc magnet" and you can find a suitable replacement.

Here's the link to the magnets only that Bill at Phoenix Engineering sent me late 2016.

Thanks, madrac. I also went ahead and got a spare sensor kit that 10ovr linked to.

No worries, steveo. Not a bad idea to get a spare sensor. I did, but directly from PE around the time they closed shop a few years ago.

Thanks for sharing this - do they have adhesive like the ones Bill provided and if not, what adhesive would one use that's safe to attach under the platter?

Also, I know the asking price is not crazy, but does anyone know whether they sell in smaller quantities, as I would never use anywhere near the 100 they offer! :lol:

Cheers,
Vin.

I do not know for sure if they have adhesive. My guess is they are the same magnets that Bill/PE supplied with the tach. Could always ask the seller on Ebay.

I'd have to look into adhesive options if the magnets don't already have.. perhaps some sort of epoxy would work.
