I have had the good fortune to come into the possession of several
pounds of carbonyl iron powder.
This powder is a very very finely divided iron powder and usually the
particles are coated with some compound of iron to act as an insulator
that reduces eddy currents.
In the past I have put this powder into a PVC pipe to make something
similar to a ferrite or powdered iron rod. These make a nice portable

I anyone is interested in trying some of this powder get in touch with
me and I will make some available.
