    I thought they are raster scan like TV, etc. If it's a long explanation, any pointers to a guide or what to Google for?

    I was just talking about using the tube and yoke, not the chassis. Is that where we're confused?

      Thanks

      I was not asking for me in particular but rather for those following this discussion. I think Joey should get a stickied section for all this detail to go in...

          I buy them there all the time.
          Normally I get 3 TVs for $5.

              59cm are hard to find. I found a Daewoo one at Cashconvertors in the end. I also have my eye on 59cm Mitsubishi at my GF's work, which is going in her cab.
              I even advertised in the paper, and had about 20 or so calls all for the wrong size though
              Keep looking

                Ring a tv repair shop (always a good source. They have a lot of old tv's left there due to the cost of repair being more then a new one) or try a Retrovision or someone that takes the old stuff for you.

                    Yeah am mate of mine works in a TV repair shop, the biggest in my area. He is getting me a couple of 48cm tubes for some lowboys I am repairing, but they don't have anything between 48 and 68cm. I have emailed the other big repairer in my area, just waiting to hear back.

                      freecycle

                      is a place to try. once had a 88cm crt tele on there and as the name suggests free. missed out by 5 mins


                      someone just listed a 54cm in my area and they will deliver

                      hmm tempting to store for the future

                          now theres 5 there interesting has they have rgb plugs on the backs old as the hills and easy weigh about 50kg (i can just lift it) and about 1m across

                          ive started another thread to suss out some ideas with the one i got

                            now i was wondering joey

                            do these chassis use the degauss coils on the tube already and the ground wiring or do these need to be removed. I saw in AK thread you get new ones anyways but was wondering as ill be preparing for one of yours shortly

                              Yeah you can use the originals but some times the plugs are different , so it's just as easy to replace the whole thing with the new ones supplied with the chassis.
                              If the plugs on the old ones are the same I just use them
