Is there any danger associated with sawing the glass tube off the neck of a CRT picture tube? Answered
I had an idea to saw the glass tube projecting off the back of a CRT picture tube (the part that has the pins on the back and surrounds the electron guns) that I have lying around and put it in a plexiglass case or something cause it would look cool. I need to know if there are any dangers in doing this that remain after the obvious things such as discharging the tube and breaking the seal on the back of the neck. I do know that the screen is coated with a phosphor that is not good for you but this should not be an issue because i am not going to be working with the actual screen part right?
