  • Slug diameter

    I know someone who has a magnet zapper, but has only zapped in-line armatures. He’s not sure what size slug should be used to zap tjet pancake motor magnets...
    the slug diameter that I have estimated to be is: 7/16”.
    I can obtain a .500” steel slug.
    that should work, right?

    Kevan, you'll need a 0.700" gauge pin for the inside diameter. Ideally the anvils should have a 1.05" diameter. I had a new set of anvils made just for t-jets. I use McMaster-Carr for my tooling supplies.

      My experience has been that regular ceramic magnets do not tend to loose strength, I have 50 year old pancake magnets that have not been stored with care yet are still good. A particular magnet can only be so strong, if it is not fully charged zapping it will be beneficial, otherwise it will not be stronger. If zapping the magnets will not be costly it would not hurt to get them done. It would be an interesting experiment to get before and after gauss readings on each magnet.

        Just verifying that the correct distance from the tjet motor magnets is .700”
        there is some”one” that has a magnet spacing tool that is .700” diameter per fray specification.
        it mite work as a slug...?

          I like the steel gauge pin for it's mass. It also mates up better with the 3/4" thick anvils on my magnetizer. Some of the fray gauges are aluminum (One Stop Slot Shop) and only the height of the magnets.

            Jmacartney - did you mean to say 1.05 inch RADIUS for the anvil?

              Rondo12, No, the outside diameter of the magnet package in the car is 1.05". The radius would be 0.525". I magnetize both magnets at the same time, with a steel gauge pin (0.700") between the magnets.

                Jmac: You are right. I had a brain fart LOL. Looks like a good setup in your zapper!

                  It was asked privately, so I'll post the gauge pin here.
                  The steel plug gauge is P/N 21135A39 from McMaster-Carr. It is 0.700 diameter x 2" long. About $28
