Default Accurate Type O

Since my last thread went so well... any chance someone will tell me the correct way to remove magnets and check polarity?

I just read your other post and have never heard of dangling the magneto from a rope. I use a compass to check north south poles of a magnet.

Here is a video of what I'm talking about with the dangling from a rope. You give the charger a little power and the magnet oriented its self.

Using a compass does exactly the same thing except you don't have to turn the magnetiser on. Hopefully you noticed that they placed the recharged magnets onto a "keeper" (piece of steel) to help the magnets hold the charge while off the magneto.

Yes I did notice. With the compass though I saw another video that says south on the compass points at the North on the magnet. Is that correct?
