Dismantled a CRT - Usable flyback transformer ? Answered
I've been reading up on Jacob ladders and tesla coils for a while now, and decided to try to make a Jacob ladder (the tesla coil just looks scary and advanced)
I've taken a part an old CRT. And I was wondering if you could tell me if it looks usable.
I'm wondering slightly if I broke it when I removed it from the 'plate' it was stuck in. Pictures will show what I mean.
Sorry about the bad focus on the pictures. Taken with a phone, and it was slightly too dark for it to be able to take good pictures.
The brown cables looks like it's just fast in the flyback transformer, but I did not remove it.
I tried to get a good picture of the text that was on in case it means anything to anyone.
Also, what I can gather by looking at this is that the red cable is the high voltage cable, and the low(er) voltage cable is either the grey, or white one. - Is that correct?
Thank you very much for your attention, and thanks for any replies.
And this site is amazing. I'm just amazed at how creative people are.
Oh, and please let me know if I posted this in the wrong category
