    I've got a old electro therapy machine from 1850. It is a simple
    horse-shoe magnet with 2 coils rotating in front of it. But the magnet is
    weakend after 153 year. I want to build a magnet-magnetizer. Can somebody
    help me with tips suggestions or mabye even plans.

    Thanks

    Jean

    Wind many turns of insulated wire around the magnet. Say 100 or so.
    Connect one end of the wire to the negative terminal of a car battery.
    Connect the other end of the wire for one second to the positive end of the
    battery.

    For a small outlay this site in the UK has plans for a remagnetiser.
