Default Re: CRT lost its tension band

Not pre-war, but one of my general duties early on was changing CRTs. No special precautions were taken, and this was the separate plate glass front screen days. Most went for re-gunning, but if disposal was needed we just knocked the pip off, no drama.

Default Re: CRT lost its tension band

If the tension band was integral to the tube, often an adhesive was used to prevent
movement. An example is the small 5" mono TVs, the crt has no band, but the
version of the crt that was fitted to the vehicle reversing cctv systems had a
non removable tension band, something I had only ever seen on large crts.
