I also used the Weller or what ever Gun I had handy on the old CRTs.
Just about any coil of wire will work that does not draw too much

Such trannies radiate SFA mag fileld.
An electric heating coil has a very small magnetic field,

Single turn sure - but a carrying about 250 amps !!.
So, at close range the same as a 25 turn coil carrying 10 amps.
Much like the example I posted earlier that WORKED like a treat.
