This 2nd Edition Pulsar Jeweler’s Technical Manual is provided here as a free, no-obligation service to visitors of this site. But some parts of the manual really don’t get you anywhere, or could use a little on point explanation so you don’t miss a critical point. This page is one of the few where I will have moderated commentary or addendum to the information allowed, with full credit given to useful additions.
Commentary on manual – pages numbers AS PRINTED.

Steel shunts will only last a few weeks before becoming saturated(magnetized) and ineffective – Hi-Mu 80 Metal shunts last indefinitely.
