Hi,
Does someone have a set of plans or directions (or at least some tips) on how to build a do-it-yourself magnet charger (12 volt battery as electrical supply)? If so, could you please either post it on the forum or email it to me off the forum?
Thanks very much.
Joe

www.oldengine.org/members/rotigel/Magnet I found this after I built mine. Also Google (recharge magnets) there is alot of good info out there. If you are not going to rebalance the flywheel number the magnets and mark the flywheel. I use a welder for the power supply, I hang the magnet above the charger and let it find it's polarity, stand the magnet on end the last charge, tap the magnet with a small hammer as soon as it leaves the charger. AND I may start waving a road kill, dead chicken over the whole assembly three times counter clockwise. Call me at 903 824 1949 and I'll be glad to share what little I know.

Toon, de tweede gaat over de toverij - drie keer zwaaien met een doodgereden kip tegen de klok in.

If anyone is interested in measuring the relative change in your magnets as a result of recharging here is a link to a modern Hall effect technology Gauss meter. link{http://www.em-chicago.com/gaussmeter.htm, Resudumeter II} I just bought one and they cost $200.

I'm a bang for the buck kind of guy, so here are a couple Micky-Mouse things, including a gauss meter. The gauss meter works very well, but I find to measure a magnet is somewhat subjective. How many lines of force that you cut will vary with how you hold the meter. I built a little fixture so that I can get repeatable results.
