Hmm... I found that the CRT was heavy enough not to move around anyway; I just
put the CRT on its side (so I was cutting through the shorter edge) and cut
from top to bottom, taking it slowly and backing out every so often as I was
worried about the localised heat damaging the tube.
I just used a surplus PC PSU and a stray bit of resistance wire, but the short
edge of the HP's screen was only 8" maybe; something with a bit more kick
would have been needed for a more conventional tube.

Afraid not - just looking at my archives now and I don't see anyone mentioning
a site when I was talking with other listmembers about the HP above. Steve
Loboyko, Dave Brown (both HP) and Bob Shannon (Imlac) appear to be the only
others who had tried doing this at that point in time.
