If you use any of the epoxy adhesives that have iron powder as one of
the ingredients, the glue will "migrate" to the poles of the magnet.
I witnessed this myself when gluing some neodymium magnets to some
wood dowels. Back about 10 years ago, Dave Andrews and I made a
variety of "magnetic canes" for hunting meteorites. We used golf
club shafts that can be bought at a thrift store for cheap. The
longer woods shafts were the perfect length. If you want something
shorter, you can shorten the driver shafts or simply use a shaft from
an 8 or 9 iron.

Too many people were born on third base
and go through life thinking they hit a triple.
