An Archaic Spin on the Demagnetizer

by J.Edwards

Tags: , ,

Back in September, we talked a little bit about magnetism;  more recently, as I’ve been working my way through reading the whole of Donald de Carle’s Practical Watch Repairing, I came  across this interesting illustration of a  hand powered demagnetizer that requires no electric current at all to function.


While it’s not something I can see myself using in daily practice, ever since the blackout of 2003 I have been keeping my eyes peeled for different ways to keep my workshop off the grid and this fits the bill. I may just consider making some variant of this if ever I do happen to find myself stuck with a magnetized tool when the power is out.

If you have thought of innovative ways to conserve or go without power in your workshop, leave a comment and let us know how you did it.
