Speaking of which, I'm planning to replace a CRT this
weekend and naturally don't want to get a big shock. I've
read that one way to discharge a CRT is to use a well
insultated screw driver with an alligator clip/wire on the
shaft of the driver comnnected to ground, and then insert
the end of the driver under the suction cup where the anode
meets the tube. Any thoughts on this approach?

Also, if neither CRT has been on for a week, how much charge
likely remains?
