Compound Magnet


The Compound magnet combines the function of a chest magnet and a primary pneumatic stage in one compact assembly. Only the addition of an exhaust pneumatic power motor is needed to make a compact, quiet and fast electro-pneumatic action.


A typical sound board action would have the power motor glued to the upper surface of the bottom board and the compound magnet screwed to the underside with a boring connecting the two. Alternatively, a compound magnet can be used as the primary stage of an exhaust pneumatic chest action.
