I'm trying to reuse an electron gun from an old black & white TV for an art project. I've posted into this forum rather than Electrical Engineering as I think that this is a strictly mechanical matter with no electricity involved. The TV's dead, and all I want is the physical bits of the gun. It doesn't have to work, but has to be intact. My issue is an implosion risk. I don't currently have access to the TV to ascertain it's age, but it's full of valves and I don't know if it has an implosion device. Is there a way to recover the gun with acceptable risk?
