I guess you could use a glass rod as Don suggested but wrap it with fiber optic thread instead of wire.   Might just work for PT/PD!

Hi, thanks for the interest.  I only use the SS rods for gum, fish glue, gelatin, casein, etc.  using a glass rod with a wrap or two of Mylar tape would probably work with iron processes.

It is a wooden box, plate glass top, and a 12v linear actuator, 12v dc power supply, and DPDT reversing switch.  All parts from a surplus supply and EBay.  Total cost $90.
