    I shot an old crt once with 12 guage slugs. They went right through, no massive implosion. I was disappointed. Yeah if you have an old cabinet tv, give it another 10 years it will be worth money. We had an old rca growing up. It resisted having a 6 meter transmitter in the house. The new plastic one, even with filtering, used to go black screen when I keyed up

    For bulk items I want to get rid of, I usually just find an open dumpster at night...

    We took ours to the local landfill. No charge as long as you live in the same county as the landfill.

    I have mentioned this before. About 1975 I went to visit my parents. In the living room was a portable TV, picture but no sound. Another portable TV, sound but no picture.

    They were both sitting on a big wood cabinet floor model that did not work at all. My father made a lot of money, but grew up in the Depression, and was, shall we say, frugal.

    As I am.

    My old Sony weighed a lot, so I had to pay my lawn care guys to carry it out of the house and haul it to a recycling center for electronics. It cost me about $50 to eliminate that old (but still working) dinosaur.

    The new flat screen TVs are remarkably light and space efficient. I love ‘em.

    Heh. For years I never operated six meters because I lived in cities with TV stations on Channel 2. The real fun back then was the old TVs with 21 MHz ifs. 15 meters really ate their lunch!

    I believe most people take them out to the Mojave Desert. They then shoot them up leave them there.

    I have a Sony 42" tabletop LED projector I had to retire due to it being 14" deep, but it works great, so I don't want to toss it. It has a good digital tuner. Anybody in SW PA want it for camp?
    EDIT, LCD projector.

    They make interesting targets for belted magnums on a rifle range. 7mm rem mag on an old glass crt is very telling after seeing a 7.62 russian.

    I hear you can dump unwanted junk in the woods behind a neighbor's house...

    You have to be kidding, you got $150 for an old tv? Had to be an interesting story behind it?

    I couldnt get down to a black friday sale at walmart back in 2007 to throw $800 at an lcd tv. Look at what you can get now for $800..

    You can make a good amplifier using sweep tubes!
