Hi Dan

Haven't done this myself but, maganflux is a magnetic-powder test
where the casting is magnetized and the surface dusted with magnetic
powder.  Low velocity air blows the excess powder off and leaves 
the defect outlined by powder particles.  According to Marks Handbook
the dry powder method using dc magnetization is recommended. Note:
expert interpretation of the results is necessary.

good luck
