How can I make a cheap degaussing coil for a tv (220v). ?
How can I make a cheap degaussing coil for a tv (220v). I've tried a soldering gun and other small transformers but didnt work (big crt tv).
I even build a coil with 10 meters of 10AWG (2.5mm) wire in a 12' diameter on 220v which only generated a shortcut (I build this just guessing the amount of wire and awg, so no mystery why I failed).
I've read that a coil made out of #24 awg wire and over 1000 loops would do the trick (for 220v and over 500 loops if a used a 220V-110V transformer), but that is too much $ in copper wire. Maybe I could refurbish wire from a old electronic appliance, but not sure which might be it.
Thanks for your time
