Hi Karl, I used a coil connected to a battery and switch, when the switch
was pressed it triggered a "CRO". After the  delay period the seismographs
output was measured directly on the "CRO". The coil was placed some 4 feet
from the seismograph, this gave the necessary mechanical force via the magnetic

pulse. The battery was 1.5 volts. The dampening adjustment was also set by
this method.
