Default Reviewing a cheap CRT degaussing wand

In article ,
says...

You need something that puts out a large AC field - like the unshielded
transformer used in soldering guns.

An electric heating coil has a very small magnetic field, I'd say it was
most unlikely to be useful for degaussing...


Ah, thanks, I get it now! I don't have a soldering gun, but it would
certainly have been a lot easier to find one for sale than a degaussing
coil. Or I guess I could've looked around for something else with a
transformer I could salvage.
