Hello,

At the risk of sounding obtuse, and most certainly not wishing to play Devil's Advocate;

Where is there the slightest risk involved, with an implosion ? However violent it may be ?

ATB,

Perhaps because once the fragments of glass have been accelerated inward they keep going out the other side? It looks a lot more "interesting" than a can being flattened.

Watch the video! Matey-boy did not put steel shutters down around the high vacuum area, and partitions between CRTs within, for no good reason!smiley Would he have done that if there was ‘not the slightest risk’ of high speed glass fragments flying around?

laugh Good video.

Although, he was trying to maximise the effect.

I had imagined putting said crt face down with a tarp or blanket over it.

As you say, Brian, there will still be high velocity glass shards flying around.

Thank's for the link.

ATB,

Daniel
