Post by Sunder »

The magnet on my horizontal width coil is broken. Anybody know where I can get a replacement for that and or where to buy a replacement coil. Thanks in advance guys.

I used the core of a width coil of an Italian TV (same thread as that of a Hantarex monitor). They're slightly thinner so I put a few turns of tape around it until it was tight enough to be pushed/pulled instead of screwed which is more convenient anyway.

It would be easier to buy an unthreaded ferrite rod of similar diameter and length.
