Induction, Induction, Induction. I said nothing about demagnetizing. I used a demagnetizer to produce the effects of induction upon the aluminum layer. No more, no less.
I have no less than 4 different induction heaters (at the factory) which will literally set the CD on fire, if I crank their level and leave the CD there. Seriously.
As for Ethan, I've no comment other than to note his 'contribution' to the situation.
I guess, as Robert said in the opening to this month's issue, that he simply is incapable to that level of fine discernment. Thank god he doesn't have anything to do with science, as it would look like the fucking Inquisition all over again. The bloody Pope to my Bruno. Jeebus. Me'n Hobbes. We do lotsa runnin'.
I thought that the thread was titled CD DeMagnetizing.
Excuse my confusion.
I too have experience with induction heating at a former job. One 5KW machine and one 15KW machine, both using RF (400KHz). I am aware that there are 60Hz machines also.
I would like to see your experiments on a CD and an induction machine.
