    Take a high carbon steel, Ferrite or Alnico etc. and either rub it with another permanent magnet or place it in a magnetic field. Soft iron will make a good temporary magnet but not a permanent one.

    1. Get a piece of solid metal.

    2. Get a Pretty strong magnet

    3. Hold the magnet against the Metal for a good 30 seconds

    4. Have fun with you newly created magnet

    5. Repeat process every 200 years as necessary

    You have an iron rod placed on the table and a bar magnet . Rub the bar magnet on the iron rod from one end to another end . Rub for around 50 to 100 times in the same direction. now you get a permanent magnet

    Making a home-made permanent magnet is impossible. I have tried to do so but no one is a success. The one that is home-made wll always lose its magnetism easily if it is once knocked.

    However, in making magnet, there is one crucial factor. One must superheat the unmagnetised magnet until it's hot and must be red hot. Red means the electrons in atoms are moving from lower orbits to higher orbits and back to lower orbits in split seconds or called electron promotion, this will produce photon (light). And red means the electrons are loose enough and the metal is ready to be magnetised at ease.

    In factories, the molten metal is highly magnetised (important)until those hot active atoms line up in the direction of magnetic field. They must not be moving about. The molten metal is cooled slowly (important) because if it is cooled too fast, the atom will freeze in other direction.

    A permanent magnet from toy motor will not lose its magnetism when heated until it glows red. otivaeey@yahoo.com

    simple way

    take a 4.5v battery

    connect it to a bolt having around 50 copper wire turns

    close the circuit

    allowing the current to flow

    let it happen so till the current in the battery is finished

    i bet itll be a permanent magnet

    if u want itt stronger

    take a more volt battery n turn the copperwire around the bolt more no of times

    ive done so

    it became a permanent magnet

    when turned on, yes. The properties of magnetism are the same, regardless of the permanent or temporatry state of the field.
