Disassembling a CRT and getting the flyback Answered

Hello!

I'm getting a bit tired of playing with disposable cameras... there's only so much you can do with them. Well, I acquired a CRT, presumably from an oscilloscope, a couple of weeks ago and I want to get the flyback out of it (and figure out how to use it) so I can make a Jacob's ladder or Tesla coil.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to proceed?

Here are some pictures.

That is a cathode tube not a flyback.
This is a flyback.

Darn. I guess that for some reason I thought that the ray tubes had flybacks built in. Guess not.

Don't throw the tube out later you might want to make an oscilloscope with it in the future.
However you can get a flyback from any TV or monitor.

There is a spot on the tube that had a bit of a rubber cup on it and a thick wire coming out of it. Follow that wire back to the part it was connected to on the main board and you will find the fly-back.
