What can a deflection coil be used for once removed from a CRT?

I took the coil off a CRT and I was wondering if it could be used for anything else.

There's some nice wire in the de-Gauss coil (if you pull the tape off it), you can use that for winding new coils.
The deflection coils are really only useful for functional CRTs, a bit fiddly to unwind and the wire ends up "kinky"


Good answer.
