Re: Magnetazation of Toroid

Hi Skip & All,
I have tried a super magnet to deflect the 'arcs' with no apparent
effect. Since the current is very small, so is the force exerted.
Large currents, arc welder, are readly influenced by strong magnets.
(rail guns)
Tesla did discover that under certain conditions some discharges
became extremely sensitive to magnetic fields. He suggested that 
information could be sent this way. 
BTW a super magnet will cause a dark spot in a florescent lamp.
Could a very strong field 'quench' a florescent lamp?
