Nah, thats a bad idea . Imploding CRT's REALLY wreck your day !
My favourite is to salvage the mainboard off the monitor , "safe" the
CRT then let the recycling people deal with it .
(also stops the poor rubbish man/skip emptier getting maimed by CRT)
You'd be surprised how many repairable TVs and monitors I've found
just dumped in the hedge, skip, or over a wall . We once had a VCR
left under our garden seat !
