  1. Magnetization by Double Touch

    The process of magnetizing a steel bar by simultaneously stroking it with two poles of a horseshoe magnet or with two opposite poles of two bar magnets. The poles must be close but not touching. A block of wood may be placed between the ends if single magnets are used. The poles are placed on the middle of the bar and carried back and forth to one end, then to the other, and so on, ending at the middle of the bar in such direction as to give each end the same number of strokes. The poles must be close together or consequent poles will be produced. If bar magnets are used they may be held inclined at an angle of 15º to 20º with the horizontal bar to be magnetized. The ends of the latter may rest on poles of two other magnets, each end on a pole of the same name as that of the magnetizing magnet on its side. (See Magnetization, Hoffer's Method.)
