Probably. I guess I need to find something old with a nice big transformer in, as I'll need a few cm gap between the two ends of the "C" - I don't think they make many things with big transformers nowadays as everything's gone to SMPS.
I've already worked out that the best source for the magnets for the electromagnet to attract/repel is probably an old HDD...
Thanks for the pointers.
