I remember reading about some of this about 35 years ago when I was in college. Nope, nothing new under the sun here. I would defy any of you to quantify the effects based upon your equipment and experience. Yes, the influence of a magnetic field is catagorized but I doubt if you can measure it in your smithy. Stick to the basics and execute to the formulae that has worked for years. 0]
