Does anyone know where I can get some good large strong magnets in Wellington? We're temporarily setting a van up as a camper for a couple of days and I thought that would be the easiest way to temporarily attach some curtains on the inside.  I had a couple of big magnets I pulled out of a hard drive that will work perfectly, but all the standard rare earth strong magnets are usually only 8-12mm wide discs (I've got some, and they're not really up to the task).

I suppose I could see whether I have any more drives around to recycle, but thought I should check here first to see if anyone had any ideas.

Me, I'd use duct tape.

If I was trying to achieve something that my wife would accept, I'd use those command strip adhesive hooks. They are strong and come off without marking the surface. Cost about six bucks a pack from the warehouse or the supermarket.
