# Changing the location of poles on a neodymium magnet

So I have a neodymium magnet. Its a bar. The issue I'm having is the the ends of the bar aren't where north/south are on the magnet, its on the front and back face of the magnet.

Is there a easy way I can move the north/south to the poles of the magnet, as would be expected from a bar magnet.

• Probably best to make clear here that when you speak of a "neodymium magnet" what you really mean is a neodymium compound magnet such as $Nd_2Fe_{14}B$. The pure element neodymium is also a ferromagnet, but only at very, very low temperatures below 19 Kelvin. – Samuel Weir Jul 17 '17 at 21:51
