Here, the magnets are not ideally positioned - the edge of the table should actually be exactly under the two magnets!
Move the combined magnets sideways toward the edge of a table.
Place one magnet on the table.
We concentrate on the overhanging magnet, which shall be pushed off.
By all means, put on gloves!!!
Hold the magnet on the table tightly and push the wooden edge down on the overhanging magnet.
Push evenly and hard until the wedge slowly makes its way between the two magnets.
As soon as the resistance becomes a little less, quickly push down the wedge with the magnet.
(If you don't hurry up, the couple could reunite in no time and you have to start over again...)
Store the magnets at a safe distance from each other until the next use.
