Bearing and magnet instal slugs

I am after someone who can turn some bearing and magnet slugs for me.
As I no longer have a guy to do it for me.

Not sure if this helps, but here is my method. If magents are prebonded I just use Les's parrallels.
If I have unbonded segments that are repelling each other - say I have just dropped the bottom segment.

I use a slug, cover it with grease amd then I use the jaws of a small shifter to clamp magent into place, having an old endbell on to stop the can spreading also helps.
