lots of hardware, bolts, nuts, washers, little switches,
fan, little motor. Give the big transformer to your local
ham radio operator. All the magnetrons I've removed were
easily disassembled by removing 4 self-tap screws. Slide
off the frame and heat sink fins to remove the magnets. Pry
open the (filament filter) can to get the rf coils (if you
can use such things). Metal reclaim the remainder. Most
have safety glass in the door if you can use that size.
I agree, we need to let our kids learn by doing! I would
warn the kids that those magnets have a real affinity for
each other, and will really hurt with a small finger between

about this TV discharge thing. I discharged a 'dead' TV the hard way...

I never got shocked from a picture tube, but once, when I was being
careful, I must have made a mistake and gotten 2KV, because I jumped
back 10 feet with a dislocated shoulder. It hadn't been out in 8
years, and I thought it was healed (after 10 previous dislocations.)
Witihin 3 months it was coming out 4 times in one week, and I had to
have surgery. Good doctor. No problems since.
