Most powerful electromagnet/magnet for hobbyist?

  1. Nov 22, 2015 #1
    What is the most powerful electromagnet/magnet that a hobbyist can afford to buy? That is, the one that can generate the strongest field? Are superconducting magnets prohibitively expensive? Really powerful lasers can be bought on the Internet, but I have never seen a store for electromagnets. Is there one?

    I would say, check out this thread. But as it turns out, that's a question that you asked. And didn't stick around for the answer.
