Looking for a circuit to magnetize a magnet

  1. Several years ago, I saw a book at the Library that had a circuit that
    could be used to magnetize a magnet. If I remember correctly, it
    basically consisted of about a dozen very large capacitors. They were
    charged by a constant current supply. When the capacitors were
    charged, the power supply shut off. Then the operator could fire the
    capacitors with an SCR switch. The capacitors discharged through a
    coil of very thick copper wire. This made a very strong magnetic
    field for a short time interval.

    I have been back to the library and the book has been worn out and
    discarded. I have also used the search engines Google and Yahoo to
    look for this or a similar circuit and been unsuccessful (although I
    learned some interesting things about submarines).

    Any help would be SINCERELY apprecieated.
