Have an old or useless CRT monitor or TV your considering to throw out?
Well, before doing that, you might want to consider salvaging the onboard components such as the transistors, heatsinks, resistors, capacitors and especially the flyback transformer for later cool projects.
The goal here is to keep the tubes out of the landfills because they contain large amounts of lead and phosphor, and stuff you really don't want to pollute the environment which may seep into the underground water supply.
Taking apart a TV or a monitor may sound easy, but it can be very dangerous if you don't practice safety procedures.
