Fixing the TV

And the TV repair man said it wasnít worth fixing.

Like I always say. If you canít fix it with a hammer stone, then you canít fix it.

TV glass . Percussion and pressure.

Iím just wondering how old the TV was. I canít really recall them having a tube in a while. Also curious as to how thick the glass was.

We still have a couple with a picture tube. I donít know if a flat screen would work or not.

I actually got this glass from the dump. The guy that used to work there knew I used the glass from the picture tube and saved the glass from a few when people threw them out.

A word of caution. Clean off the glass right away. It has a coating on the inside that Iím sure isnít good for you.

The glass is surprisingly thick. Depends on the TV, but usually about half inch thick. It also has a curvature you have to deal with but the thickness helps with that.
