FYI Thought this might be of interest.

WEIDENHOFF MAGNETO MAGNET CHARGER

Antique Auto Mechanic's Tool
This very hard-to-find early automobile mechanic's tool came from a rural Texas estate where it was used to refurbish the magnets used in the magneto ignitions of antique cars and farm equipment. It is just as found except for the dust.This is not a large item, measuring about 8" x 5" x 5", but it is very heavy being made of cast iron, steel, and copper, so it will require solid packaging bringing the shipping weight up to 16 pounds, See pictures on CL Taylor Texas

I think that only charges one magnet at a time off of the flywheel.

Anyone ever seen an EASY way to charge the magneto still in the car?

I have seen hooking up multiple car batteries but who has that many extra good batteries laying around?

Tom, you obviously don't have enough Ts, I have about 6 batteries by my charging station!

On my last engine assembly I put the mag coil directly on the magnets before putting everything together. Used the batteries in series and gave them a few zaps.

Same as an in car charge but better because you are in direct contact with the magnets.
