MrJentis on Instructables has a guide to dismantling a CRT monitor (which is very dangerous and not recommended):
Have an old or useless CRT monitor or TV you’re considering to throw out?
Well, before doing that, you might want to consider salvaging the onboard components such as the transistors, heatsinks, resistors, capacitors and especially the flyback transformer for later cool projects.
The goal here is to keep the tubes out of the landfills because they contain large amounts of lead and phosphor, and stuff you really don’t want to pollute the environment which may seep into the underground water supply.
