Actually, Jere Dotten cut a circle out of the large number magnetic 
registration number from the VTR at Valley Forge.  I was talking about using 
an advertising magnet from various businesses that hang on the refrigerator.
Can't get much cheaper than that.
We had to pull the drain after a week or so and the magnet had picked up 
some metal - residual from before the rebuild..so all is well.
