I would like to buy more Marshall Magnets for some clubs in my vicinity.

The tool is "out of stock" at Professor Motor ... (the place I have ordered mine)

Is it possible to find it in other shops ? and is it possible to find it in Europe ?

Thank you.

The Magnet Marshall has a section on Slot Car Illustrated. The unit is now out of production and you might have a hard time finding a new one. Used Magnet Marshalls turn up from time to time. An alternative is to make your own using a cheap electronic balance. When my club still used magnets we had one for each track. We had a standard magnet that was used to calibrate them so they all read the same.

Funny thing is, apparently when they were being made, they didn't sell well. Once they stopped being made, they sold out and have been in demand all over the world.
DS now makes a much more advanced, and more expensive, testing bench, but it's WAY overkill for basic magnet marshaling needs.
Hopefully TechTech Ent. decides to make up another batch of Magnet Marshals at some point.

They do pop up from time to time and get expensive like the magnet zappers or VRP slot car tools.

if you want one that bad you can find them but you have to be willing to pay.

I found mine in less then 2 weeks. it was very expensive but I needed it. I love it and heck I didn't know they existed before.

I think part of the issue is they didn't really advertize that much about it or how it worked.

Make your own, seem to work fine for me at home.
A set of digital scales with a hole cut in the weighing platform, piece of metal glued to MDF to have it at the same height, but not touching the platform and a hole cut for the guide.









The 3 Scaley Peugeots above show the difference in the same car, just different liveries. Its not rocket science but it works for me. My Scaley

Hi,

Very interested by this simple technique to weight the motor magnet.
As far as I understand, if we imagine a platform without metal piece, weighting the same as the other one, is the difference a interesting mesure of the motor magnet ?
I'm not a specialist but I'm interested in suche meseasues.
Thanks.
