For the uninformed: Place reel of tape on the spindle (pin on left) and energize for a few seconds. Rotate tape while power is ON. Tape content will be neutralized. Can also work with cassettes and eight-tracks as well as video tapes and credit card stripes.
Since the inside is only one magnetic pole, it can only create polarity in THAT field direction. Real zappers have magnetic coils for BOTH North & South.
Turn it into a mag blaster: take the guts out and insert a magblaster in the case. Cut hole in top for motor insertion.
