re: Life, attachments and how to smash a CRT

Patrick, your sentiments are shared, I have been thinking how to say farewell to my 15+years 27" CRT Sony Trinitron TV, right now lays in my garage, functional, but almost naked since the plastic enclosure has crumbled recently during last move. At the time, it was been replaced by a 32" LED flat screen TV from Vizio, I realize like you it is just another aged appliance, but I beg to differ. I did serve us well for over 15 years, and deserves an honorable farewell. My old TV set has seen at least 4 major moves and traveled with us between Kansas, Missouri and Texas. During the last move, about 5 years ago I did notice couple of cracks in the plastic enclosure. Mostly in the top vented area, and near the High voltage circuitry. I assume that it may be a combination of ozone and heat that made the enclosure brittle after these many years. I was planning to cut the CRT neck and save it as a piece of interest, but have not found a clean method yet, suggestions welcome. I am also open to farewell suggestions; I was favoring the use of hammer and a single impact to the neck base, in order to reduce debris.

hi Patrick, I could use the capacitor from that model. My trusty 17-year companion has taken a turn for the worse, and I can't find this part at the usual sources. Would you be interested in selling it to me? nelson at adyn.com

What we used to do at University at the last party of the term was to fling a TV from the 3rd story roof while plugged in and tuned to Johnny Carson. I guess Leno would have to do these days.

Hey Duane, I'd like that, normally, but I am concerned about hazardous chems spraying everywhere. Need to keep it outdoors.

I do like the idea of the sledge or the pick axe, but it might be fun to see what you could do with a household item in a semi-plausible in-home accident scenario. Like if you were trying to dispense with a spider by throwing a can of beans at it, but hit the CRT instead.
