I used to use their thin magnetic backed bases

@ 17mm round (penny sized)

Does anyone know if anyone makes penny sized round magnetic bases or magnetic stickers for pennies?

I buy my penny sized magnets from LItko.net but correct me if I'm wrong, a penny is 19mm?

Litko does supply the what you're looking for.

Extra Crispy what size round magnets do you buy for pennies from Litko? I don't see a 19mm.

I'll check the label on my bag if I still have it. Might be 3/4"

I went to a craft store (AC Moore, Hobby Lobby, Michael's, etc.) and bought a 3/4" hole puncher (I think it was in the scrapbooking section). I use sheet magnet (with self stick backing) to punch what I need out and it seems to work well for pennies with no exposed edges.

United States pennies I think are 19 mm in diameter, Canadian might be 20 as they seem a little bigger than US. I based a lot of figures on Canadian pennies Back when they cost 3/4 the price of the US penny. Then I had the great idea of using Penny collector booklets with the holes in them cut up for moving units. The Canadian pennies didn't seem to fit.

3/4 of an inch is pretty much 20 mm.

I too have bought Paper craft punches, but could never get them to punch out magnetic sheets or to do so with great effort and lots of wastage between the punch outs.

No! 3/4"=19mm 0.75"=19.05mm 19mm=0.748"
19mm & 3/4" wrenches are interchangeable. Guess what I used to do.
Can you still do it the other way? Metal washers for bases and magnetic trays. You could have a problem depending on whether your existing figures all have matching polarities. Done from the start that was more cost effective for me.

I get all my bases from the "Good Ground" company, the owner of Cracker Line Miniatures and Plank
Road Miniatures. They have all sorts of different sized magnetized bases.

crackerlineminis.com

The owner, Bill Moreno is a true gentleman and artisan. The only thing that outshines his products is his customer service. This is one of the companies where a true gamer owns and runs it.

He sells the best 10mm ACW line on the market and has started a great Mexican American War line as well.

Cheers,
JB
