Electomagnetically Shrunk Quarters...

Postby David Prouty » May 9th, 2012, 4:47 pm

"In a nutshell, electromagnetic forming is the result of cranking some scary high energy through a coil wrapped around a conductor. The coil gains a wicked magnetic field that's changing quite rapidly and imparts a magnetic field to the conductor via the "magic" of electromagnetic induction. The thing is that these two magnetic fields repel each other in a very violent way. If the power is sufficient and the experiment controlled, the coil explodes and the metal in the conductor is compressed."

I have several of the quarters from the website that Jonathan referenced and they look much better than the one at the website given by David. And even though they are "shrunken," they are fatter!
