Where can I buy a powerful solenoid?

    Does anybody know where a powerful solenoid can be bought? Need to create a strong magnetic field for an experiment.

    What level of magnetic field? Over what volume? How even does the field need to be over that volume? Do you have a meter to measure the field?

    I think these things are generally built, not bought, since your required parameters will differ from everyone else's.

    The magnet parameters you require will totally change the answer to that question. How strong? How big? What bore size?
    "Strong" magnetic fields mean vastly different things to different people.
