This is a Public Service Announcement (PSA) and warning to anyone interested in servicing, repairing, modifying or otherwise handling CRT (Cathode-Ray Tube) Monitors.   Video recently done by Perifractic on his Retro Recipes YouTube channel explains the dangers and safety precautions individuals need to take when performing or working around these devices.  This video also features other notable YouTuber’s like Jan Beta, and the 8-Bit Guy as well as direct safety notation from Tom Lee of Stanford University.  While the video has some humor as Perifractic is also known to show.  The subject of CRT handling is absolutely serious, and improper handling could result in a loss of life.  That means in the worse case scenario, you die…

This has been echoed on other media platforms and fellow Retro Gamer/Tech enthusiast out there.  Including all the members of the Retro Roundtable agreeing on these dangers.  Please please, research and take steps to equip yourself with the proper and factual knowledge/know how as to safely handle and operate on CRT Monitor.
