The truth is heat and magnets don’t go well the magnetism becomes lost with heat…

Ah, but the truth is that magnets don’t lose their magnetism until you hit the Curie Temperature. A quick look at Wikipedia shows that the lowest Curie temp for various magnetic materials is about 300-400 C. You aren’t going to get it that hot!
