Hi all. This post is a review of the cheap "green stick" CRT degaussing
wands, as I haven't found much discussion of them and some other
repairers of vintage monitors may find it useful.

CRT degaussing tools seem to be hard to find these days. Occasional used

...
In summary,

Pros:
- Cheap.
- Does what it's supposed to.

Cons:
- Not particularly sturdy.
- Probably not the safest thing ever, use with caution.

If there were better-quality tools available, I would definitely buy
those instead. But there weren't, and this one did at least provide the
functionality I needed.

HTH,

**I have always been an audio tech. I have always avoided TV work
where possible. However, back in the day, I would frequently perform a
CRT degauss, using my Han-D-Mag head demagnetiser. I found that it
could deal with any degaussing requirement.

Geez, they're expensive nowadays. I still have mine.


A bit cheaper on this side of the pond:
