    Monitor yoke

    Stupid question. I got two free very old crts monitors that I broke down. Had a lot of copper!!!!!
    What is the actual yoke on these things made of? Looks like carbon but it is magnetic. Steel? Iron?

    Ferrites are chemical compounds consisting of ceramic materials with iron(III) oxide (Fe2O3) as their principal component.[1] Many of them are magnetic materials and they are used to make permanent magnets, ferrite cores for transformers, and in various other applications.
    You didn't forget the "silver" wire that ran around the bottom edge of the tube, did you?? It's tinned copper.
