Nice article.

If you can't find the vent cover magnet sheet, most office supply stores have business card magnets 'blocks' of 100 or so that are already the size of business cards; you can set them under the newly created bases and trim to fit, and they also have adhesive backs. They tend to hold very well and don't 'dry out' like the BattleFront magnet sheets do over time.

That's how Fox Bases started so many years ago. But back then I used a paper cutter to cut the bases. As it grew, that's when I got the good ole micosaw that I love so dearly.

You can also get magnetic sheets at Ben Franklins that are 2 foot by 1 foot. I would place the floor tile on the back of the magnetic sheet (using the adhesive on the floor tile to stick them together). Trim them into 1 foot squares and go to town.

Great article Tom!
