I've never seen one.

Look for the same thing under the TANDY brand name, you might have more luck.

Good idea - I had forgotten that was the name in the UK.

There would be a lot of this stuff in the US.

Shipping is usually the killer from there.

Very true. Plus I'd need to buy a step down converter.

But that can be useful for other gear.

Years ago I built a picture tube degaussing wand, which would be something similar. Wound about 2,000 turns of 22AWG enamelled wire over a core of steel packing strap strips that were arranged in three stacks, and angled to give a hexagonal cross section. Because I wound it by hand, I lost track around 1700 turns, so it may have 1900 to 2100 turns LOL..

 

This coil was fitted inside a piece of 30mm PVC tubing with a momentary switch fitted. I must admit, I was a bit wary testing it the first time.

But probably no scarier than the 1,000 to 1 voltage probe I also made.
