I have this strong rectangular permanent magnet that got stuck to a metal bar. My living room table has a sliding top and the metal bar is part of the mechanism that the top slides on.
The magnet looks as shown:
The magnet is in a slightly awkward place but some of the things I have thought of is to perhaps place another magnet on the opposite side of the metal bar in such a way that it pushes this stuck magnet away from the bar.
I do have a bunch of other magnets I could try for this but I would probably have to arrange them in some way to make them stronger. Or alternatively this idea is just a pipe dream.
I have not been able to pull either end of the magnet from the bar even a millimeter as of yet.
What things could I try to remove the magnet from the metal bar?
