- Single Spoke Gear 5 7/8″

- Quadruple Spoke Gear 8 3/4″
- Quintuple Spoke Gear 10″

Please note that Kodo’s magnetic accessories will NOT work on standard magnetic white boards, as the steel generally used to manufacture them is not a strong enough gauge. Our walls are fabricated using thick 14 gauge steel which is needed for good adherence of the magnets.
