It was all Dinges fault as usual, and I had to split a microwave transformer to make the degausser. I cut the "I"'s from the "E"'s so had the e core with the primary on it. It gives a very very strong directional field.

Because the inductance is so low without the I's, I used a 40v transformer to drive the 240v primary.

I now have demagnetized the chuck and all associated tooling... and am damn pleased too.

Village idiot...or... just another hack out of his depth
