Re: magnetically quenched gaps

Greg: I am starting to build a Magnrtic gap. I have obtained some ring
magnets off of old speakers. They are heat glueds to the steel frame and
come off with heat. The largest I have found is 100 cm OD which I will try
first. I have a max power source of 30 amps also so I dont like the vacuum
cleaner motor idea. No tests yet.
