Hi Dewayne,

I'am kind of amazed at this answer.  Maybe I shouldn't be,
perhaps they are like 60's or 70's vintage age?

I've messed with them before somewhat, and although their
gauss isn't terrific, their mass bulk (about 4 lbs) certainly
contributes a great deal of hazard/finger wise.

Thanks for a's one of those things I've wondered
about for some time.
