Default Reviewing a cheap CRT degaussing wand

I use a large Weller Soldering Gun when I can't find one of the
degaussing coils in the shop...

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
current.



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

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.
