Pot magnets can be used in a variety of different ways. Each magnet has particular features which specialise them for these tasks.
Countersunk pot magnet attached to an exhibition display sign
A countersunk pot magnet should be chosen when a pot magnet needs to be attached to a non-ferromagnetic material securely, for example, for an exhibition display sign.
This pot magnet would be an ideal choice, as the use of a countersunk screw to attach the magnet means that the pot magnet is not easily removed.
Internal threaded pot magnets

When choosing a pot magnet to be used as a magnetic base, the best type to choose would be an internal threaded pot magnet. This is because it allows you to attach your instrument, for example an articulated gauging arm, securely with the aid of a threaded hole.
Deep internal threaded pot magnet
The added depth of a deep internal threaded pot magnet also provides stability to the object when it is used as a magnetic base.
The depth of a deep internal threaded pot magnet can vary.
Through hole pot magnets
The best pot magnet to use as a retrieval magnet to collect ferromagnetic material, such as coins, from hard-to-reach places, would be a through hole pot magnet. This is because a piece of strong rope can be threaded through the boss (through hole) and tied to the magnet without affecting its magnetic ability
A bi-pole pot magnet is the ideal magnet to be used as a jig or fixture. A bi-pole pot magnet provides a higher magnetic pull than other magnets and can be easily glued into place. This allows the user to create a jig and provide a strong holding force for a fixture.
Stud pot magnets

A stud pot magnet should be chosen by a user who intends to use a pot magnet as a ceiling magnet.
A stud pot magnet has the ability to attach accessories such as hooks or eyebolts, which enables it to be used as a holder for supermarket signs that hang from the ceiling.

|High maximum pull forces. NdFeB Pot Magnets and Neodymium Pot Magnets can be made with different temperature ratings and different magnet coating finishes.||Ideal for clamping and holding,Maximum temperature 100°C,Ideal for sub-assemblies||High power ‘rare earth’ magnet material. Slightly less powerful than neodymium but works up to 200 °C. (Neodymium is usually only usable up to 120°C.)||High maximum temperature: Alnico itself is capable of up to 550°C! Natural or painted finish available.|

|The rubber coated Neodymium (NdFeB) pot magnets are also suitable for fixing signs, plates, temporary lightings and sample parts scratch-free onto highly polished chrome-plated or painted mild steel (ferrous) surfaces.||
The strong neodymium magnets are embedded in a steel pot. The steel pot increases the adhesive force of the magnet on direct contact with a thick iron surface.
They are ideal for incorporating into jigs and fixtures. They offer high holding forces on parts that are thick and clean with a good surface finish.
|The search engine uses the search neodymium magnet to locate and pick up metal objects from the bottom of reservoirs, wells, mines and other depths. Magnets allow lift even very heavy objects.|
